Default Help with X modeline

Hi all,

I've got a problem with my X configuration that I can't figure out for the life of me.

I've got a nforce tv-out setup, and my problem is that right after I do startx, there are about 5 seconds of flickering on my TV before X will 'lock' on a resolution and display properly. This will run in an embedded sense (like an appliance, I just turn it on and off and let it go), and this frequency thrashing before startup looks terrible.

I've looked through the XFree86.0.log and it seems that the flickering is due to scores of video modes being tested before the correct one is found. I have no idea how to specify this correct mode (modeline?) in my config so the flickering will go away.

I'm shooting for a nice 640x480 resolution.

Attached for your reading pleasure are the XF86Config-4 and XFree86.0.log files of the offending system in question. I'd really appreciate any suggestions whatsoever.

Thanks in advance.
