I am also looking to force 720p from my source. I tried using the EDID file provided in a previous comment, but am receiving an error as follows:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/local/bin/pivideo”, line 11, in <module>
sys.exit(main())
File “/home/pi/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages/pivideo.py”, line 214, in main
edid_control(vid,args.edid)
File “/home/pi/.local/lib/python3.5/site-packages/pivideo.py”, line 253, in edid_control
bvalue = edidfile.read(1)
File “/usr/lib/python3.5/codecs.py”, line 321, in decode
(result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final)
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0xff in position 1: invalid start byte

It seems like Python 3 encoding doesn’t like something about that EDID file. Does anyone mind uploading a new one or giving me some guidance on how to create my own?
