Default Help with dual monitors + component HDTV

I'm trying to get things working with two LCDs connected to the card (one DVI, one DSUB), and an LCD TV connected via component cable dongle, hopefully getting 1080i or better and twinview...

I can do this in Windows fine but I'm having issues using nvidia-config. When I try to enable the TV it disables one of my LCDs, only allows me to use a resolution up to 1024x768, and the output is very blue on the TV.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't have a lot of experience in editing the x config.

GeForce 7600 GT

Display Devices:

WDE LCM-22w2 (DFP-0),
TV-0 (TV-0),
Sony SDM-HS94P (CRT-1)

Mine is below:

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
