I see no reason why a Raspberry Pi would not work.
The Pi has HDMI out. That TV has a DVI input so all you would need is a HDMI to DVI converter or cable.
Cable:

Converter:

You would just need to ensure the DVI pin layout is the same for your TV.
The sample products above use DVI-D connectors. Your TV has DVI-I. The DVI-D male can plug into a DVI-I female and still work. (The other way around won't work ie DVI-I male into DVI-D female).

So in short yes it should work.

Note: I already have the hdmi to dvi convertor from my settopbox to tv, that works fine. Wonder if raspberry xbmc will ditectly show correct resolution.
Btw, there is a hdmi splitter in between (for settopbox and connection to mediacenter) maybe that can/has cause(d) issues?

I wouldn't use a splitter just to ensure that isn't the issue. Check that it works without one first. Then add it if you need it. If there are problems then you know the cause.

Looking at that setup I don't see any hardware connection issues.  Software could be an issue. I would try the simple connections first.  Raspberry pi direct to tv. then connect the sound. Then the network. Everything looks ok from what i can see of your setup.
