TwinView on two CRTs with modelines
TwinView is weirdest stuff I ever encountered.
I eventually got "working" TwinView with displays turned on and used right for X start. I was trying all day to get it to that stage. I won't mind turned of TV (it by DVI->VGA cable), but turning it on in nvidia-setting stilling me compositing and VPDAU (or at least most of accelerations) and its permanent.
Eventually I got it working, but now nvidia doing what it want with my CRT. It suppose to start in 1600x1200@76Hz, now its 1600x1200@75Hz, which is completely wrong. I do not want this mode. I want VESA CVT 1600x1200@76Hz mode back. When I shall switch to it on nvidia-settings all acceleration is gone yet another time.

I had to comment Modes and MetaModes to get it work. If I shall uncomment any of them, it will stop working.
