	I don't know about the RenderAccel option, but this is what I ended up 
using after much trial and error with geforce:

Section "Device"
         Identifier  "Videocard0"
         Driver      "nvidia"
         VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
         BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)"
         VideoRam    32768

         Option "NvAGP" "1"
         Option "NoLogo" "1"
         Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
         Option "TwinView"
         Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
         Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync"     "30-50"
         Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh"   "60"
         Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 
640x480, 640x4
         Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
         Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
         Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

Section "Screen"
         Identifier "Screen0"
         Device     "Videocard0"
         Monitor    "Monitor0"
         DefaultDepth     24
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     1
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     4
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     8
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     15
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     16
         SubSection "Display"
                 Depth     24
                 Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

	Comment out all DRI stuff.

	On the PVR side, make sure that you run the firmware upgrade and 
compile the lastest driver into your kernel.  You can verify that the 
problem lies with your PVR over your graphics card by plugging in a 
monitor and seeing what it looks like.
