nvidia geforce TV-OUT twinview


Hi everyone! I'll be brief, here's my scenario: i'm a happy owner of a Geforce FX5200 that fully works with my SUSE 10.0 and nvidia 7676 official driver. Beside my LCD monitor, i want to connect my good ol' Samsung 20" tvcolor to the S-Video scart out of the geforce, just to watch films and videos. I succeded in configuring the TwinView mode: in my tvcolor, now i see a 640x480 portion of my desktop, and that's how it is supposed to work, i think. The question is: how can i get both screen going fullscreen? When i activate fullscreen mode in xine, on the tv i see still a portion of the fullscreen on the monitor. They don't get both fullscreen just like in THE OTHER operating system...
If anyone has any suggestion, any possible solution to get a fullscreen on my tv, i'll be really pleased.

In any case, thanks everyone and excuse me for my bad english, but i'm italian!

PS here's my xorg.conf, just in case it might be useful

What I've found to work is this:
Use the 'Clone' mode
Make the metamodes so you have a setting for both screens to be same size.

EG My TV out will only go up as far as 800x600 and my monitor goes up to 1280x960, so I have:

Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x960,800x600;800x600,800x600"

Then when I want to watch a film I use gnome-display-properties to change res to 800x600. Then turn on fullscreen mode in xine or mplayer etc

Hi dive, thanks for the replay! I'm in clone mode yet, and i'll give a try to the metamode you suggested... But i'm afraid i'll have some problems changing xorg mode to 640x480 on my lcd monitor. Well, i'll post the result as soon as possible!
