Twinview with CRT + [CRT or TV]

I have Tvinview configurated on my FC2 box, and it works good both with CRT + CRT and CRT + TV-out. Is it possible to change between CRT + CRT and CRT + TV without restarting X?

Any recomended configurations?

Sorry, don't know a solution for your problem, but I'm just curious:

You wrote your system runs fine with TwinView wnabled. Do you encounter freezes or garbage on the console when you switch from X to console with <Alt-F1> with TwinView enabled? If not, can you tell me which card and driver version you're using?

This would be great, thanks.

I do not encounter any freezes. I can run it for days.

There is no garbage on the console. But somtimes I get garbage on my secondary monitor when I exit my OpenGL screensaver or monitor standby-mode. Switching to console with alt+f1 and back to X agin fixes that problem.

I'm running with the 6106-driver and a Asus V5960 VS (GeForce FX 5600).

Anyone else that has got an answer to my original question?

The type of switching you want is not possible. The only other similar thing you could do is to load two Xservers but that also consumes a lot more resources.

This sounds like it would be a useful feature to add to the driver. Where can I submit it as a suggestion?

My situation is DVI + [CRT or TV]; I'd love to be able to watch a movie on the TV OR play a game on the CRT without restarting X. (when you have about 15 apps open and ssh's to a bunch of machines, restarting is a bitch)

How did you get TV-out to work with your GeForce card under FC2? I had it running under RH9 and XFree86... What does your xorg.conf look like and did you download any drivers?
