Configuring the i.MX53 QSB HDMI Output Resolution

I have received my i.MX53 Quick Start Board and HDMI interface.  I am able to enable the HDMI output in uBoot and it displays on my HDMI monitor.


However, my monitor indicates that the generated HDMI signal is 1024x768 60Hz - which is not 1080P60.


How can I configure the generated HDMI resolution to 1920x1080 60Hz - 1080P60 which is supposedly a capability of the i.MX53 ?


Are the supported resolutions documented somewhere ?


Can the HDMI output driver configure the resolution for the attached monitor by querying the monitor capabilities via the interface ?


Old hand at embedded development but relatively new to Linux. Thanks for any assistance and / or pointers.
