Default need 1280x1024 resolution, nvidia-auto-select thinks otherwise

Attempts to set 1280x1024 via xorg.conf are ignored and looks like at the end of Xorg.0.log nvidia-auto-select is getting set. Anyway, despite what it says, the resulting res is always 1024x768 and I have to set 1280x1024 manually in nvidia settings after each reboot. I've done the preview option in nvidia-settings and pasted the data into my xorg.conf and still not having any luck. I'm wondering if its acting like this because of the inability to access EDID information.

monitor is Panasonic VIERA TCL37S1 HDTV
