tv out / metamodes

I have a toshiba notebook with fx go5600 chipset. Following Configuration works for tv-out:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "All"
BoardName "All"
Option "NoLogo"
Option "CursorShadow" "on"
Option "TwinView"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1400x1050,NULL;640x480,640x480"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP, TV"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "TVOutFormat" "Composite"

the problem is, that I always get a resolution of 640x480 on my display, even if my tv isn't plugged in. when I comment out the "MetaModes"-Line, I get 1400x1050 on my Display, and nothing on my TV (this is ok for normal work). but I dont want to always change my XF86Config to watch TV. Somebody know how to switch between metamodes? or has anybody a better solution for tvout?

btw: why do the 4496 drivers work, but the 5328 dont?

change the metamodes line to following did it:

Option "MetaModes" "1400x1050,1400x1050;640x480,640x480"

dont know why, but it works. change between modes works with control+alt+"+" or "-" from num block.
