The nVidia driver replaces the core X server EDID parsing code with
custom stuff that includes the ability to decode the EDID extension
block. That's where the additional modes come from.

What's probably going on is that we're not using the HDMI-specific SDVO
operations, so the card is operating in DVI mode, which the TV may not
like. HDMI isn't the same as DVI; it just has a DVI compatibility mode.
SDVO HDMI support is on our list of things to do; I don't know when
we'll find time for it though. Probably not until after the upcoming
X.org release though, I'm afraid.
