        Took a lot of experimentation to get this to work like I wanted. This is just for my records. The key line is "metamodes" I think.

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Videocard0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "1"
    Option         "TVStandard" "HD1080i"
    Option         "metamodes" "CRT: 1280x1024@1920x1080 +0+0, TV: 1920x1080 +0+0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Virtual    1920 1080
        Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
