Nvidia TV-Out / TwinView


I've been trying to set up my xorg.conf for using TwinView to get TV-Output, but I can't get it right !
If somebody could post a working exemple of a xorg.conf for TV-Output, that would be great! Elseways, I'll have to use Windows for this, until Nvidia has implented options for it in the "nvidia-settings"...

Thanks

Does anybody read the manual or the README file. The information about nVidia's options is in that file. The README file comes the with driver and it is also posted on their site.

If you are using a resolution larger than 1024x768 which is the limit of TV out, you have to include it in the Metamode list and you have to include the word NULL after the comma. If you do not do this, the X Window System will fail when using very high resolutions.

BTW, TVOutFormat is either COMPOSITE or S-VIDEO. The word CRT is wrong.

I read the README, but I didn't understand enough to configure the output correctly...
Anyway, thanks! I'll try this configuration.
