Thanks for the hint. It works only when the TV output is first switched 
off, else I got an error message. I had then to play with the modelines 
as the automatically detected do not give a good results. This is as far 
as I got:

xrandr --output LVDS1 --primary
xrandr --output TV1 --off
xrandr --output TV1 --set mode PAL
xrandr --newmode "720x576 at 50" 27 720 732 795 864 576 581 586 625 -hsync 
xrandr --addmode TV1 "720x576 at 50"
xrandr --output TV1 --mode "768x576 at 50" --above LVDS1
