Question tvout - xfconfig


Hi! i try to use the TV as a copy of the image of my monitor, but now I don't know what to change anymore.,., i haven't got any signal on my TV.
This is what my XFconfig file looks like right now,.,. maybe someone can se what I have to change? And is there any button combinations or something I have to use to see my desctop on the TV?

I'm using MSI Geforce FX5200-TD (NVIDIA) and Redhat 8.0

I changed:
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
for
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
to get colour
now it's just the resolution I can't get right,.., i can only see the upper left part of the real image.

any suggestions?
