yet again need help,screen goes blank in tv out nvidia

Hi all

I have been installing myth tv all day now ( still not there yet:-k ). I have been doing this connected to my monitor. now when i finally wanted to connect to my tv i am having major problems with the TV out. I installed the nvidia drivers and it seems to be installed correctly (i get the nvidia logo at startp-with the monitor). The problem is that if i connect only to a TV, i can see the bios coming up, the grub menu, then i can see the ubuntu screen coming up in black and white and out of place and then when there should be a login screen i get a blank screen. if i use ctrl-alt-F1 then i can login with text. i really have no idea what to do now. any help would be really appriciated!!
