You don't specify what sort of output your laptop has or what sort
of input your TV has so it's difficult to answer the question.
I have a Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS which has DVI output, connected
to a Phillips HDTV using a DVI->HDMI adapter and a HDMI cable.
I am using the commercial Nvidia drivers for performance
primarily, the related config for X11 is
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
HorizSync 28.0 - 51.0
VertRefresh 43.0 - 60.0
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "Generic Video Card"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Modes "1920x1080" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Depending on the laptop, with the commercial Nvidia driver the
hot key that sends the display to the external output will not
function. Also I found that at least on my previous Toshiba
M5(which has a Nvidia Quadro NVS 110M), I had to enable the
2nd display in the BIOS before things like Twinview would work.
I tried at one point to get SVideo out of the Toshiba M5 to
my TV but could not get it working, I suspect it wasn't
supported by the driver.
I'm also using Etch, though the driver is the same in any
