nvidia 240M + tree monitors configuration problem


Hi,

I'm running openSuse 11.3 x64 on my Lenovo y550p laptop. I have built in laptop display, some external display connected with d-sub and TV connected with HDMI via sound receiver. And I can't make my system works with all these monitors together. I need HDMI connected all time because I prefer to use my receiver instead of laptop speakers for audio output. Every time I enable TV with nvidia-settings utility the laptop screen becomes disabled. I tried every possible combination with TwinView and Separate X screen, but unsuccessful.

Here is my xorg.conf below:
Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 256.35  (buildmeister@builder97.nvidia.com)  Wed Jun 16 19:14:45 PDT 2010

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 256.35  (buildmeister@builder97.nvidia.com)  Wed Jun 16 19:15:05 PDT 2010
