Dual screen, dual X server problem


Hello,

I ve tried everything I knew with this problem but no luck. I really hope you guys can help.


Current situation and specs:

kernel 2.6.7-r11, X11-Xorg and the newest Nvidia kernel.
I have a pc with a GeForce4-Ti4200 with 1 normal VGA output and one DVI-I connection on it and a monitor 19" inch (brand: Sony / Dell).

I bought just recently
- 1 Tv-Tuner
- 1 monitor 17" inch (brand: Medion) specifically to watch the tv-tuner output on.

What I want is 2 fully seperate monitors working on 1 GeForce videocard.
So it would be like this:
1 monitor which would be my smaller MEDION monitor enables me to watch TV all the time. The second monitor will show my normal (office and etc..) programs.
NOTE: That I do NOT want 1 big screen like in twinview xinerama or whatever it is called.
Anyway I ve read the NVIDIA manual like a dozen times and did everything they said in Section R for setting up multiple X servers. But nothing works it seems.

The problem is that when I try to connect the two of the monitors one of them (the smaller one) goes on black and saying OUT OF RANGE. But I am sure this cant be true. This is what I have done and what I get to see in /var/log/Xlog....
