Default Can't get 720p working over component


I can't get my LCD tv (32 inch, 1366x768 native res) to run at 1280x720 resolution over the component output of my 8800GTS. I've disabled EDID since it doesn't work properly for my TV (not all the compatible resolutions are returned). X rejects the 1280x720 mode and defaults to nvidia-auto-select which sets the resolution to 1024x768 (as seen in the log). Could this just be a modeline problem? Any ideas?

I've attached my xorg.conf, the X log and the output of nvidia-bug-report.

Couple of thoughts:
* It seems that Nvidia and X are quite happy with your display with (I assume) DVI output yielding EDID function. If you want that setup I'd suggest your first eliminate the custom modeline and all TV-Out options, and add these xorg.conf options: NoVesaModes, NoXServerModes. Maybe this will cut down the number of modes in the modepool and the ones you want will not get bumped off the list.

* Unless it's been changed, I believe component output would be "TV-Out". In that mode your custom modeline is ignored.

Good luck.
