     As far as I can tell, none of the xorg.conf files you have posted have
had a display subsection in the screen section.

You will need something along the lines of:

   SubSection "Display"
       Depth 24
       Virtual  720 480
       Modes "720x480"

You haven't mentioned anywhere what kind of display you are using, but
presumably it is a NTSC television.  The component output, unlike the
S-video and Composite outputs, supports multiple resolutions, and it will
need to be explicitly configured to output a 480 line resolution.

Odds are that you have it outputting at a resolution that your TV doesn't
