Nvidia TV Out setup problem


Hello,

I am new to Ubuntu (lovin it so far) and I followed a guide on how to enable TV out on my nvidia 6800 nx card hxxp://doc.gwos.org/index.php/NvidiaTvOut After I restarted my pc my xserver crashed with the following generated log:

well the first thing that pops out at me is that you have no vertical refresh/horizontal sync settings for your monitor, only Option "DPMS"

Quote:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor[0]" #CRT
Option "DPMS"
EndSection
and your monitor section for your TV has a typo:
Quote:
VerRefresh 60

edit: something I do to minimize confusion/eye-strain (that has nothing to do with your problem, unless I'm overlooking other typos), is to give the monitor, device and screen section for each physical screen the same identifier. so the monitor, device, and screen sections for my monitor all have the identifier "CRT", and all the sections related to my TV have the identifier "TV". just makes it a bit easier to look at and be sure everything is just right.
