You could use sudo raspi-config and select Advanced Options -> Resolution, then choose the resolution you require (as long s your monitor supports it and the capability is detected).

Or you could manually put the setting in /boot/config.txt. The setting you need are hdmi_group=1 and hdmi_mode=5 for 1080i @ 60Hz (Close enough to 59.94 to be within range). 720p @ 30Hz isn't defined, but you could try creating a custom mode

Details of the config.txt settings are here: ... t/
