Default Connecting multiple display devices with different resolutions and hot swapping

Hi

I have a PC connected to an LCD (correctly overscanned res of 1216*684) and a projector (much more forgiving and happily takes assorted 720p modes). Only one display device is active at any one time via the same DVI port as the cable (with DVI-HDMI adaptor) is connected to a 1 in 2 out hdmi switch sending the signal to either the LCD or the PJ.

What I would like to do is switch between my 684 line & 720 line resolutions without changing any xorg config or restarting anything, just simple mode/resolution switches. This is a problem that feels like I have all the tools to do it but I just cannot see how nor can I think of appropriate search terms to narrow down the results

At present I just list all the modes for a single device and then switch between them using ctrl + alt + +/-. The result is that I get a virtual screen size of 1280*720 and all other resolutions are displayed within that screen size.

Is it possible to do what I want? if so, advice welcome.
