Question Linux: Activating TV-Out on Asus/GeForce2 card

Is there a manual explaining how to switch the GeForce2 GTS card from the standard VGA output to TV Output (PAL)? I checked if the PAL/NTSC jumper is on PAL, but I couldn't see a VGA/VHS jumper so there must be a soft switch somewhere... Under Wind-knows it's a setting in the Control Panel. Is this also possible under linux?

OS: Dualboot Win98/Suse9Pro
Card: Asus V7700/T
Available plugs: 15 pin VGA, 7 pin SVHS and composite RCA

Thumbs up

Yep. That got it to switch. Hooray!

Only the size & position is the remaining problem.
sax2 is ignoring my additions and I can't get xfine to conect to the display.
But that' some minor problems...

Activating TV-Out on Asus/GeForce2 card

I checked the link given in the previous reply and found it to be long since dead.

I have a similar setup on a Sony Vaio PCV-MXS20. I would like to enable TV-out but nothing seems to work. My Xorg.conf looks like:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400]"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "TwinView" "yes"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"

I have also tried NVTV without success.

Does anyone else have a solution to this problem?
