Default Understanding Moninfo modelines...

Ok so I am starting to get a hang on how I am going to have to get the 1080i working, but now I am stuck on how to configure the modeline suggested in moninfo into powerstrip, i tried just matching the numbers by similar value, but nothing in the custom resolution screen seems right. Can anyone lend a hand on how to do this?

Here are my suggested resolutions, I made the one i'm trying to figure out bold.

All you have to do is copy and paste the Modeline into PowerStrip's Custom Resolution builder. So you copy this from the 1080i timing recommendation:

Code:
"1920x1080" 74.250 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1094 1124 interlace +hsync +vsync

and then paste it in using the little paste icon.

Tried this, but PowerStrip won't let me enter values this high.

The only difference I have from the screenshot above is that Interlaced is checked.

Don't try to enter the values as they will interact with each other. Copy the modeline to the clipboard by highlighting and then either right click, copy or control-c. Then paste the contents of the clipboard using the paste icon into powerstrip. The righthand one circled.
