I got a reply off-list suggesting resolution 720x576, discovered by  
running
startx -- -logverbose 6
and then check  /var/log/Xorg.0.log for good resolutions

such as
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 320x200
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 320x240
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 400x300
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 640x400
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 640x480
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 720x576
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 800x600
(II) NVIDIA(0):   TV Standard: PAL-BDGHI: 1024x768

So, it turns out that PAL-B uses 720x576, which made use of modeLine  
unneccesarry

Thank you Greg
