Yep, it's pretty easy.  If you've explicitly specified TV output, you'll
want to disable that, of course.  You'll probably need to add 'Option
"UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"' to the device section in xorg.conf.  If you don't, the
DisplaySize line will be ignored, and you'll end up with very tiny fonts.
You'll also want to specify the "1280x720" mode as your default mode.
