FC6 3 monitors w/ 2 video cards


I have a dual head nvidia card as my primary device it works correctly supporting my dual monitors. I also have an on-board intel i810 video device. This works also well BY ITSELF. The problem is when I try to use both devices at the same time for 3 monitors only the device set as primary in BIOS works.

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can give

Here is my xorg.conf

I am experiencing the same issue using an nVidia GeForce 4000 and an i810 integrated graphics card. I'm attempting to use the S-Video out on the nVidia as a mythtv display. I've exhausted all my knowledge with this, so any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Chris
