NVIDIA Quadro NVS 420 issues on multiple displays


I'm running RHEL 5.5 with the Quadro NVS 420 and I would like to know how to the configure the system/Xorg to display on 3 monitors, 2 Dell 2410 FP and a Sony Bravia 52-in LCD TV.

Currently, I can display on the two Dell monitors but no luck with the Sony TV.

I've donwloaded and installed the latest driver.

Any suggestions?
I am running on Dell Precision T5500 max out w/ 8 CPUs and 24GB RAM....
