It should work with the nv driver.

Well, almost. It loads the driver, maps the rame buffer, and then tries to figure out which outputs have attached monitors:

        (--) NV(0): Connector map:
        (--) NV(0):   Bus 0 -> DAC1
        (--) NV(0):   Bus 1 -> DAC2
        (--) NV(0):   Bus 1 -> SOR0
        (--) NV(0): Load detection: 340
        (II) NV(0): I2C bus "I2C0" initialized.
        (II) NV(0): Output VGA1 using monitor section NEC LCD1970GX
        (II) NV(0): I2C bus "I2C1" initialized.
        (II) NV(0): Output VGA2 has no monitor section
        (II) NV(0): Output DVI0 has no monitor section
        (II) NV(0): Probing for EDID on I2C bus 0...
        (II) NV(0): I2C device "I2C0:ddc2" registered at address 0xA0.
        (II) NV(0): I2C device "I2C0:ddc2" removed.
        (II) NV(0):   ... none found
        (--) NV(0): Trying load detection on VGA1 ...

That is as far as it ever gets. So back to the vesa driver for now, and back to 16-bpp mode.
