Default LCD TV as 2nd display via HDTV output

Hi,

I'm trying to connect my LCD tv to my computer (AGP 6600GT, 96.25 beta drivers) via component (using the dongle that came with the video card). I've tried setting it up using the nvidia-settings applet, however the xorg.conf file this generates (see below) does not work - the LCD has no signal. Has anyone got a configuration like this working, and if so, how? Any suggestions?

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Thu Sep 14 15:51:14 PDT 2006
