Here's my xorg.conf My problem is that after I tried to use it, my normal TFT-monitor gets the TVs values (low res and default background) and TV gets my monitors values. I tried to switch the screen values but then it put default desktop theme on my monitor, with correct res and all but, all my icons and background images where on the TV screen with correct res. Any idea how to get this working so that my default theme stays on my monitor and new default theme is on the TV with correct resolutions. And how can I get nvidia's TV-in thing to work?

Appaerantly it puts the TV as primary display and sets my monitor as secondary. It doesn't too good like that as, for exampel, some confirmation messages go straght to primary display.

This is how the tv-settings looks like in my xorg.conf file. I have two monitor sections, two Device and two screen sections. I have only included the tv related sections. I flip between them by moving the # comment in the server layout section.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Tv-out"
HorizSync 30-50
VertRefresh 60
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Tv"
Driver "nvidia"

Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
Option "DPI" "96 x 96"

Option "TVStandard" "PAL-G"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen-Tv"
Device "Tv"
Monitor "Tv-out"

DefaultDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubsection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen 1"
# Screen "Screen-Tv"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Your thing is like it uses monitor OR the TV. And you have to close KDE for the swithing to take effect?... I'm seeking something where I can have picture in my TV all the time put same time use my monitor like it was single device.
