I'm not sure about vidix, but with VESA you probably won't get a
resolution of 960x540 (there is a table in VESA bios, which defines
possible modes). With a good framebuffer driver (you didn't tell
about your hardware) you can define your own modes, also this is
possible in X

Isn't geexbox a mini-linux-distro? Why not use a real Linux install and
use X?

Or just use 800x600 and let the LCD panel scale. What a machine is this 
using such a strange display resolution?
