You don't need the full xorg.conf, 80% of it will not carry over. What
is important should already be listed with the TVs, it says modelines
in the title, but if you actually read the page you will see people
placed the appropriate other information that they needed to get it
working. As well, the exact card shouldn't matter outside of the 5200
specific "hacks".

Perhaps organizing this information better to help find the tv your
looking for may be in order, but I don't think every TV needs a
separate wiki page.

Before you ask, read the FAQ!
then search the Wiki, and this list,
