From the nVidia README file:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "string"
Allows you to override what the NVIDIA kernel module detects is connected to your video card. This may be useful, for example, if you use a KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch and you are switched away when X is started. In such a situation, the NVIDIA kernel module can't detect what display devices are connected, and the NVIDIA X driver assumes you have a single CRT connected. If, however, you use a digital flat panel instead of a CRT, use this option to explicitly tell the NVIDIA X driver what is connected. Valid values for this option are "CRT" (cathode ray tube), "DFP" (digital flat panel), or "TV" (television); if using TwinView, this option may be a comma-separated list of display devices; e.g.: "CRT, CRT" or "CRT, DFP". Default: string is NULL.
So I believe if you put Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV" in your Device section (of /etc/X11/XF86Config-4), it will force the driver into assuming the primary display is a TV.

WARNING: If you do this, and then don't change it back when you hook up your CRT, it may very well fry your monitor! I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't risk it...
