The ConnectedMonitor option already accomplishes what your suggested new options do.
No, sir - I have exactly the same problem: at startup TV cannot be detected, but using nvidia-settings it can be detected. I saved an xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings (dualhead setup) - TV not detected, only LCD screen is up.
I played with options to force tv out (it can be a wrong config from nvidia's point of view but anyway). And with that conf I forced TV out (with x starting two screens) but the LCD went down. So finally I had :1 on TV and nothing (141hz signal) at :0 LCD.
