First make sure you grab the latest version from git, Dave fixed some
issues with the tvdac sharing last night.  The driver was not able to
get any edid info from the VGA port so it does not know what modes to
add.  As such you will have to manually add the modes you want to use
to that output.  You will need the latest release of xrandr (1.2.2) to
do this.

xrandr --addmode VGA-0 1024x768
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1024x768
