How to identify if my video card supports VESA CVT or CEA formats? Unable to do 1920x1080 with RGB (D-Sub)

Hi people.

I've a notebook and it only has a RGB (D-Sub, 15 pin) output, and I'm looking for a TV with Full HD resolution (1920x1080p).

The thing is, the model i'm looking for only accepts the desired resolution of 1920x1080 in CVT mode, not in VESA, and before buying the TV, I tested it in the shop. When i plugged the VGA cable, the max resolution avaiable was 1600x1200. Then i checked the manual and said that the the more common resolutions (like 1024x768, 1360x768 and 1600x1200) were avaiable in VESA mode, and that 1920x1080 were avaiable only in CVT mode.

I searched the internet looking if i could find if my video card (a SIS MIRAGE 3) were compatible with CVT as well, and if yes, where i could change from VESA to CVT?

Powerstrip doesn't allow me custom resolutions as my video card doesn't support that as well.

Side note: I live in Brazil, and the model of TV i'm interested is this one: Samsung LN32A610A3R (manual here => http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200805/20080509155135671_BN68-01429F-00L02-0416.pdf ). Over there, we can see that on the part that mention the PC Display, the table of the standards resolutions and it's modes.

Another branch, Sony, for example, just allows that resolution in CEA-861 mode... manual here => http://www.docs.sony.com/release/KLV40S410A_PT.pdf

But I checked the manual of another TV on Germany, model LE-40N87BD, and to my surprise, the resolution of 1920x1080 was avaiable in VESA mode, and not in CVT or CEA....manual here => http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200703/20070327180158984_BN68-01186B-01L08-0313.pdf

Well, if i didn't find any solution, i'll have to look for a TV that accepts 1920x1080 in VESA format or content myself with a 720p resolution TV....

So, i'm looking for anything that could help me solve this out...

I'll be deeply grateful for anyone who could give me a hint!
