Default failure in setting resolution on TV

Hi everyone!
I have a little problem, regarding setting the right resolution on my TV.

My setup is this:
DFP connected via DVI
LCD-TV connected via VGA

to a GeForce 7600GT card, using driver 100.14.19.(seperate screens)
On the DFP, nvidia-auto-select selects the correct resolution(1440x900), on my tv, nvidia-auto-select sets 1024x768(default, due to failed metamode).

My tv has resolution 1366x768.
Here comes my current xorg.conf(the relevant part) followed by the output of 'cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW' :

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen1"
    Device         "Videocard1"
    Monitor        "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "0"
    #Option        "metamodes" "CRT: nvidia-auto-select +0+0" ##nvidia-auto-select gives wrong resolution
    Option         "metamodes" "CRT: 1360x768 +0+0"
    Option         "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes           "metamodes" "CRT: 1360x768 +0+0"
        #Modes      "nvidia-auto-select" ##nvidia-auto-select gives wrong resolution
Here I have tried both 1360 and 1366 x 768 but both failes...

(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-0
(WW) NVIDIA(1): No valid modes for "CRT:1360x768+0+0"; removing.
(WW) NVIDIA(1): Unable to validate any modes; falling back to the default mode
(WW) NVIDIA(1):     "nvidia-auto-select".
(WW) NVIDIA(1): Unable to get display device CRT-0's EDID; cannot compute DPI
(WW) NVIDIA(1):     from CRT-0's EDID.
Really hope someone can help me with this
The objective is to have native resolution on my TV, that is 1366x768 or possibly 1360x768 if the first is a non-standard thing
