Secondary display setup?

My video card is an Nvidia GeForce MX 4000 and it has an s-video out port on it. How can I get a mirror image to show up on my TV in Ubuntu?

I know there is another way, but I pulled the vga plug, and powered on the box with just the svideo out plugged into the TV, and it worked fine. Do you really need both plugged in?

add this to the device section of your xorg.conf
  Option        "TwinView" "1"
  Option        "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
  Option        "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
  Option        "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
  Option        "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
at least that works for me.
