Default Re: SVideo works fine, Component gives no video at all

Well, I played around with "sudo nvidia --screen="Television Screen" --mode="720x480" and it looks like the first way I tried it above was right. You just put "720x480" in the Modes line of the Display Subsection of the Screen Section.

Here's what looks *to me* like the section relevant to me requesting 720x480 in Xorg.0.log:

(II) NVIDIA(1): --- Modes in ModePool for NVIDIA TV Encoder (TV-0) ---
(II) NVIDIA(1): "nvidia-auto-select" :  800 x  600 @  60.3 Hz  (from: NVIDIA Predefined)
(II) NVIDIA(1): --- End of ModePool for NVIDIA TV Encoder (TV-0): ---
(II) NVIDIA(1): 
(II) NVIDIA(1): Assigned Display Device: TV-0
(II) NVIDIA(1): Requested modes:
(II) NVIDIA(1):     "720x480"
(WW) NVIDIA(1): No valid modes for "720x480"; removing.
(WW) NVIDIA(1): 
(WW) NVIDIA(1): Unable to validate any modes; falling back to the default mode
(WW) NVIDIA(1):     "nvidia-auto-select".
(WW) NVIDIA(1): 
(II) NVIDIA(1): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(1): MetaMode "nvidia-auto-select":
(II) NVIDIA(1):     Bounding Box: [0, 0, 800, 600]
(II) NVIDIA(1):     NVIDIA TV Encoder (TV-0): "nvidia-auto-select"
(II) NVIDIA(1):         Size          : 800 x 600
(II) NVIDIA(1):         Offset        : +0 +0
(II) NVIDIA(1):         Panning Domain: @ 800 x 600
(II) NVIDIA(1):         Position      : [0, 0, 800, 600]
(II) NVIDIA(1): Virtual screen size determined to be 800 x 600
(==) NVIDIA(1): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default
It looks *to me* like nvidia just has it hard-coded (either in hardware or software) that you can't do 720x480 with the NVIDIA TV Encoder...

Attached is the new nvidia-bug-report.log for the 720x480 mode.
