Thanks for the tip. I had a similar problem. When my LCD-TV was on standby
during startup of X it got not detected by the X-Server. I have managed to 
force the
detection by adding a monitor section with all the modlines and also adding
"ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0". Now the I was able to turn the monitor on 
afterwards, and
I got a picture, but it was only 640x480 pixel in size :(

Adding the "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/etc/X11/LG-edid.bin" option solved everything 
for me.
Now the X-Server starts with the native LCD-TV resolution, even when the TV is 
turned off.

Regards, Artem
