Unhappy Minor annoyance with tv-out

I've succesfully used the attached XF86Config to start a secondary x-server which I can use to watch movies.
This works fine, but its a bit annoying that when the secondary x-server starts, the monitor "switches" (the familiear "click" sound when it switches resolutions) a few times before starting the server.
This is, of course, a minor problem I can live with but I was hoping someone had a solution to this problem. Here are the last couple of lines from my log file, which I guess are the ones of interest:

I have a Geforce4 TI4200 running on Suse 8.1
Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks.
