Doormat, so what you're saying is that when I have it hooked up using a component cable then the 1920 x 1080 resolution will show up as an option on my settings?
If the TV is set as the Primary
display, then yes, it should. Sometimes the drivers can get pretty uppity about which monitor it sees as the primary if you have multiple displays (I use a laptop and projector and occasionally have to re-set it up).
As to refresh rates, I seem to recall something about it not really being relevant for LCDs, sort of a holdover from CRT days. Not entirely sure about that, so don't base anything on my say so for this.
