Default VGA to RGBs - 8800 GTS

Hi everyone.

I recently built a VGA to RGBs converter (hsync-vsync to composite sync) but I can't make it work with my nvidia 8800 GTS with standar PAL or NTSC modelines.

The problem seems like if the video card couldn't handle interlaced modes via VGA, because some half-size (like 720x288 PAL non-interlaced) modelines work good...

Otherwise, when I activate a normal interlaced modeline, it outputs a black screen and hangs. It usually takes about 15 seconds to shutdown X after I press CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE.

I'm working on Fedora8, with latest nVidia drivers.

Sorry, but I'm attaching my xorg.conf (and other files if you need them) when I get back home in about half an hour, so by now I'm asking if someone has a working xorg.conf file with correct modelines and parameters to output PAL or NTSC interlaced signals through VGA...

I think I'm missing some configurations in my xorg.conf file, but I don't know which...

Thank you!!
