TV-picture on external screen/projector


I have a problem with showing a TV-picture on a projector from my Laptop.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T43 with SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (Beta). I have a TV-reciever plugged in and configured Kaffeine for watching TV.
Everything works well when watching TV on the internal screen. But when I try to show the TV on an projector it turns black on the projector. On the internal screen the TV plays and shows as normal. On the projector I see the desktop and the windows but the TV-picture is black.

I have configure Activated Dual Head Mode in Display settings with cloned multihead. I have tried several settings for the external screen, the TV-picture is still black.

Anyone have ideas?
