Question Have MSI NVIDEA FX 5500 TD256 card works good but I cant get the TV out

I have a MSI NVIDEA FX 5500 TD256 8x AGP card.
I have done the latest update with Yast and have the 3D working ... I wanted to use it to go to my TV I have had my system setup to do that before but not with this card. I have the S video plug with an adapter going to a VCR I also have my sound card plugged to the VCR too. then the VCR to the TV. Again I say I have had this work with other card it was a ATI. any Ideas?

I have gone into Yast and tried to setup multi heads but it says that there are not any to add.

Thanks for reading ... And thanks even more for an answer to my problem!

You will have to do a bit of file editing. What you are looking to do is add "TwinView" options to your xorg.conf file (around the internet you may see XF86Config-4 files, those examples work just as well).

The basic jist is that you have to add:
Option Twinview "On"

But there is far more than just that Check out:
