Question TV out, xinerama and ATI


Hi!
I have got problems with getting tv out with xinerama to work properly with my ATI 9700 card.
If I use the xorg.conf configuration below, but with the xinerama flag set to False i get it to work as it should. When I enable the xinerama, just like the configuration below the TV display gets "fuzzy". Like when you have configured xorg.conf with a too high screen resolution or depth.
Any ideas of how to solve this issue?
I have tried to change the resolution for the "Default Screen" to 800 x 600, but without any success.

Running Ubuntu Hoary

By the way:
When I ain't using xinerama I have exported mainly mplayer to the TV display. I.e:
DISPLAY=:0.1 mplayer mymovie.avi
Is there some way that I can export the mouse or keyboard control in the same way. With the purpose to e.g. close or control programs at DISPLAY=:0.1
