I don't know that I can answer your question, as I am currently researching video I/O capabilities for my own 27" iMac. But, I did notice something in your post that might help.
Your HDTV should have a multitude of inputs, but your trying to connect via VGA possibly because you are already using the rest for other devices?
I would suggest trying to connect using one of the digital connectors, HDMI, DVI, or even S-Video. Even the cheaper and/or smaller HDTVs usually have at least 2 HDMI inputs. If you are already using both, temporarily disconnect one of them, connect it to your iMac, and see if you can get it to display 1080.
I would love to have one of the experts weigh in on this one, as this is one of my video output questions. Thanks.
