What is the key sequence you're using to swap between outputs? I've 
got an nvidia GeForce FX Go5600 in a laptop, with TV out that I just 
cannot make work. The special key to swap between the LCD and CRT out 
don't work with Linux since everything is now done Windows specific 
drivers rather than hardware.

Is it just the "Option "connectedmonitor" "crt" that turns them both 
on at the same time all the time?

Hopefully I won't get flamed for "hijacking threads" again.
