TV-Out display different output than Monitor with Nvidia

Ok, so I was checkin out a members website a few days ago (I really wish I could remember who's) and found a page on them setting up X to display a full screen movie on the TV while on their monitor they could continue computing/surfing all using the TV-Out function of TwinView from Nvidia. They had screenshots and everything. Quite nice actually... (it was for Gentoo if that helps )

Anyway, I'm wondering how i can do this? I would like to be able to watch TV/movies whatever on the 1 monitor (the TV) and have what I'm doing on the second monitor (the actual CRT monitor) completely unaffect the first montors function (I don't wanna press f and have it kill the movie..).

Anyone have ideas on this?

Thanks for any info!

Im also looking into this, on my windows box i used to be able to connect it to my TV & watch movies in full screen.

Probably the only thing i miss about windows.
