Please advise me if I posted this in the correct venue

Nvidia explains "NoScanout" mode here: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3290 ("UseDisplayDevice" appears to be used for reordering device assignment like CRT's first, then TVs) and apparently they've fixed it already. I'll ask for this to be moved to the News section as it would be more appropriate there IMHO, you don't have to do anything.
