Right now I have two xorg.conf's. The below is the one I use to give me 1280x720 for 1 LCD and my HDTV. (The above was for the 2 LCD's)

The problem is that in the xorg.conf I do not no how to specify the TV to be 1280x720p on the previous config (above) I mentioned. Can of hard to explain I guess.

As you can see between the two xorg.conf's I have two diff metamodes.

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, TV: 1280x720"
    Option         "TVStandard" "HD720p"
    Option         "TVOutFormat" "COMPONENT"
    Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
