[nvidia driver] Twin View + TvOut


The problem is the following: I've connected 2 CRT screens (one through a
dvi2crt converter) and a TV to my nvidia Ti4200. This configuration under linux
(debian sarge) doesn't work at all. If I want to have a dual monitor, I have to
disconnect TV, and vice-versa. Under windows XP, when all 3 screens are
connected at same time, tv doesn't work, but I don't have to disconnect
phisically the cable.
Without second CRT, tv-out works fine.

Anyone knows if it is possible to get a "triple view" configuration only via
software configurations?

The ideal situation is this one:

* first CRT: main monitor;
* second CRT: leftOf extension of first CRT;
* TV: clone of first CRT.

Is it a pure utopia or have I got some actual possibility?

Here is the interesting section of xorg.conf:

 Option     "NoLogo" "true"
 Option     "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
 Option     "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
 Option     "TwinView"
Option     "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
#Option     "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"

Option     "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option     "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
# Option     "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-111"
# Option     "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-160"

Option     "MetaModes" "1600x1200, NULL; 1280x1024, NULL; 1024x768, 1024x768"

#Option     "MetaModes" "1600x1200, 1024x768; 1280x1024, NULL; 1024x768, 1024x768"

#other options I recommend:
Option     "RenderAccel"
Option     "HWcursor"
Option     "CursorShadow"
Option     "CursorShadowAlpha" "32"
Option     "CursorShadowXOffset" "3"
Option     "CursorShadowYOffset" "3"

## Option     "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
