I don't think this will work for me. I assume you are saying that the
card will report the EDID data from the TV. As I'm connecting to the TV
with a VGA-to-RGBHV breakout cable (rather than using a DVI or VGA
connector on the TV), there's no EDID information available.
If you want to get the EDID information for your TV (assuming you're
using the appropriate type of connection and the TV reports it) you
should be able do this using the read-edid utility. The Debian package
is "read-edid". The command you want is "get-edid | parse-edid". The
latter portion of the output should contain a complete X.org "Monitor"
section for use your the xorg.conf file.
