Resolution 1360x768 on DVI input (old LCD TV)

I have a rather old LE32R41BD Samsung LCD HDTV.
I am connecting my new mac mini and am trying to get the best quality display. I started using the HDMI out of the Mac and TV's HDMI input, however the display is blurred due to the 1280x720 (720p) signal being upscaled to the TV's 1366x768 display size.
I have reverted to the VGA connection which allows me to provide an input of 1360x768 with no upscaling involved. This is much crisper but is obviously an analogue signal.
I have tried sending a 1360x768 resolution down the HDMI connection (successfully) but the TV would not accept it ("Mode not supported").
If I were to send this same signal down a DVI connection (into the combined HDMI/DVI input) would the TV now accept it, or would it treat it a bit like an HDMI signal and not support?
