I am just looking at setting up a clone to my 27" TV as well as my 15" CRT monitor

I notice all the important stuff is commented out, is this intentional? Remove the #'s then it might work.

Hmm, not sure then. Looks pretty much the same as mine:
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "CRT"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "nologo"        "1"
    Option      "CursorShadow"  "0"
    BusId       "PCI:1:0:0"
    Screen      0
    #VideoRam    65536
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
    # javadesktop compatablity
    #Option     "AllowGLXWithComposite" "1"

#    Option "TwinView"
#    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, TV-0"
#    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
#    Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "10 - 60"
#    Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50 - 60"
#    Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,;1280x960,;1024x768,;800x600,;640x480,;,400x300"
#    Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I"
#    Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
#    Option "TvOverscan" "0.8"

EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "TV"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "nologo"        "1"
    Option      "CursorShadow"  "0"
    BusId       "PCI:1:0:0"
    Screen      1
    Option      "TVStandard" "PAL-I"
#    Option     "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
#    Option     "TvOverscan" "0.7"
I haven't used twinview for ages now though.

I have same problems with TwinView. Cannot get it to work to save my life. I have tried downgrading NVidia drivers as suggested by someone on nv forums but no luck. Also tried all manner of tweaking/settings.
I am sure it is the drivers causing this and would suggest posting on nv forums until they decide to take it seriously and fix it.

My TwinView works fine (6600GT) with driver 7676. Here is my section:
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier	"GeForce"
    Driver	"nvidia"
    Option	"NoLogo" "1"
    Option	"RenderAccel" "true"
    Option	"TwinView"
    Option	"SecondMonitorHorizSync"	"30-50"
    Option	"SecondMonitorVertRefresh"	"60"
    Option	"MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"
    Option	"TwinViewOrientation"		"Clone"
    Option	"ConnectedMonitor"		"CRT, TV"
    Option	"TVOutFormat"			"SVIDEO"
    Option	"TVStandard"			"NTSC-M"
EndSection
You might try removing the "True" after "TwinView" and adding more MetaModes (maybe your TV won't do the resolution you want, I know mine wouldn't).

could one or both of you post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log directly after you try to use twin view (ie. include all related [WW]'s and [EE]'s).

i think this may be a lot easier than everyone is thinking, heinola, your xorg.conf file is:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "mx50"
HorizSync 31.5, 35.15, 35.5
VertRefresh 50-70
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "mx200"
Driver "nvidia"
#Option "TwinView" "True"
#Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768;"
#Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
#Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
#Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
#Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
#Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
#Option "NoLogo" "1"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen 1"
Device "mx200"
Monitor "mx50"
DefaultDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Screen "Screen 1"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
and x-server is whining about no screen found 0 0? well, i think the problem is that you ahve specified a viewport of 0 0 in your display section, but in the serverlayout and screen sections, you have screen 1. In other words, it's trying to port an unspecified screen to port 0 0. heinold, try this... i think you'll be golden:

change
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
Identifier "Simple Layout"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
and
Code:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "mx200"
Monitor "mx50"
DefaultDepth 24
you can keep the designation "screen 1" if you'd like, but make sure you change the line
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Screen  "Screen 1"
to
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Screen      0  "Screen 1" 0 0
otherwise your x-server doesn't know which display to send the screen!
