I'm assuming you've already tried leaving the nvidia-auto-select option in the
resolutions area?  It tends to catch the EDID for a lot of TVs when you do.

If that isn't catching it, the best thing to do is bump up the verbosity of the
X log temporarily by modifying the gdm file used.  It is in /etc/xdg/mythbuntu/gdm.

Look over the logged verbosity (I think you usually need level 6), and it will
tell you exactly which EDID check it failed.  You can usually override said
check and it will carry on forward without a need for a custom modeline.
