Default dynamic twinview switching with nvidia-settings

I have a 9500 GT with two LCD monitors connected and a HDTV via component output.

I want to use nvidia-settings to switch between 2 LCD and 1 LCD + HDTV, without changing xorg.conf and restarting kdm.

In nvidia-setting's under Display Configuration I see all three displays and the TV-0 is set to off.

If I configure TV-0 as Twinview and say auto resolution I get :

MetaMode 1 of Screen 0 has more than two active display devices.

Can someone sugguest how to fix this?

Also, the resolution of the TV is 1024x768. I want 1280x720.

Here's my xorg.conf

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Card0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "nVidia Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce 9500 GT"
    Option         "TwinView"
    Option         "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
    Option         "UseEdidFreqs" "True"
    Option         "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, CRT-1, TV"
    Option         "MetaModes" "CRT-0: 1920x1080, CRT-1:1440x900"
    Option         "TVStandard" "HD720p"
    Option         "TVOutFormat" "COMPONENT"
    Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    Option         "DPMS" "True"
    BusID          "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Card0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1920x1080"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Card0"
    Monitor        "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1440x900"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
    Option         "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
