With latest nvidia drivers I had to disable EDID entirely to avoid 
getting always 1080p60 backend resolution for all modes. Here's my 
xorg.conf suitable for a full-HD Sony. Some smarter ways to do this 
would be nice.

With my HTPC without AV receiver where I listen sound from TV speakers I 
disabled EDID because there seems to be HDMI audio support in my GS8400 
card but no way to feed audio from ALSA there! Sonys select HDMI audio 
if it is present as even as zero stream.

The benefit with this is that TV does not need to be powered when X 
comes up to get a valid display mode.
