nvidia tvout twimview "tv: 1024x768 crt: 1280x1024"


Hi,

I would like to use my crt monitor at 1280x1024, and my tv at 12024x768 with the tv to scale with my monitor. I know about panneling, but this is not a solution for me. Does anyone have a solution?

thanks

Hi,

I accept their is no solution. How do you run two sperate x session at the same time with different screen resolutions, The lower on being for tv output. So I can view something on my crt, and something on my tv. And if possible send an application to the seperate x session.

I don't know whether I can help at all but I am interested in this:
I am not sure about the idea of separate sessions.
I don't think there will be a problem with the different resolutions, but do you have your TV out signal working okay to start with?
I ask because there can be a problem with the nvidia driver and tv out. For example, plugging in an s-video cable can mess with your framebuffer. It does on my Suse 9.1.

Doing some looking around today,,,
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nv-tv-out

I read in a post there:
"... in the readme for the nvidia driver it explains how to use the 2 heads as seperate X displays, I think that's what you want, you can't drag windows from head 1 to head 2 but can run stuff on both independantly (traditional X style). It's appendix 'R' in the readme."

The thread was:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.p...orum_id=105850

Lots of interesting info on this project's forums too.
