Ah. The venerable TV output. You can disable that in the config file;
I'm not sure why it's preferred to the VGA, but I do know that we've
seen several cases where an unimplemented TV output appears 'connected'
for unknown reasons. I disable mine in the config file.

Yes, Xrandr 1.1 clients will see only modes for one output and CRTC. You
have to use the new server, library and client to see all of the
available modes.
