tv resolution problem with nvidia gpu


hey there guys i need help with my OpenSuse 11.1
i've bought a lcd tv which maximum resolution is 1920x1080. Now the problem is connecting it via component cable. I have an Nvidia 8800 GT card and when i connect the television, no matter what i set on Sax2 (i wonder why it does not change anything), going in the Nvidia X Server the max resolution i can set is 1024x768.

Now here's my xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
