132-coloumn modes are SVGA text modes and the best way to get them is 
through VESA (i think it's in the faq)
the 80x28, 80x.. modes are non-standard, and I'm not sure how they are 
implemented. I have seen them all in RHIDE and know how to access them 
with Turbo Vision, so my suggestions are:
1) contact the author of RHIDE and ask him (he may or may not watch this 
newsgroup anyway)
2) Get the Turbo Vision port Source Code ( and have a look 
at that!

If you still have problems, EMail me personally and I will peek into the 
TV source myself (I have th eBorland version as well as the DJGPP port) 
and see what I can do.

Good luck!
