Default Failed to Initialize the NVIDIA graphics device - Samsung TV LN46A650

I'm running Fedora 12 kernel 2.6.32.26-175 and can't get Xorg to initialize my Samsung TV LN46A650. No nVidia splash screen, just a black screen with fast blinking cursor. The system does boot and Xwindows is running - I can VNC in to a full GUI desktop.
nvidia-bug-report is attached.

Here are my system details:

$ lspci -nn | grep 'VGA\|NV'

I tried both nvidia-xconfig and livna-config-display as the xorg.conf file shows.

My Fedora 10 system works fine to the same TV and I do recall having to do something special to get the video working but I don't recall what. Can anyone help?
