Default xorg hdtv twinview

I have my DLP HDTV connected with component cables. I get video on the TV when booting, but when X starts, nothing.

    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1440x900"

Default Re: xorg hdtv twinview

Have you tried setting it up through nvidia-settings?
"CRT-1: 1440x900_75 +0+0; CRT-1: 1440x900 +0+0"
Doesn't seem quite right...
