NVidia TV out thru xorg.conf


I added these lines to my xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/ :

Code:
        Option "TwinView"
        Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync"     "30-50"
        Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh"   "60"
        Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"
        Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
and it works...but...my desktop is spanned instead of cloned. when i tried using the nvidia-settings utility, it gave me an error. when i take the lines out, it works, but only the monitor is there (to configure) any ideas?

Good..works fine..but, the color is way off. I am using the nvidia-settings to change the hue and saturation, but the colors way off. Is there another way to configure the colors? also,
How do i load the nvidia module on boot so that i dont have to keep typing modprobe nvidia, and startx 'ing again?

If you would like to autoload the nvidia module at boot time you need to add the module name in the module autoload file, which for me is /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6, running gentoo on kernel 2.6, altough for you it might be different if you run a different distro.
you could just
echo nvidia >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
