TwinView CRT & TV (TV OUT)
OKay, rather than sift through hundreds of threads (I've gone through at least 100) because I'm a newbie at Linux, I'll test my luck here.
I have a GeForce 2 MX 400 (Old I know) that supports TV-Out. I, however, can't get it to work. I'm running SuSE 9.1 Pro. I have installed my driver and all works well on the 3D end. How in the world do I get TV out?
This thing is :nanahump: my brains. If there is anyone out there that can help me, for the love of Linux if nothing else, HELP!!

Can you hear the frustration in me? I know it's :lame:

Have you tried nv-tv-out?
Works quite well for me.

Re: TwinView CRT & TV (TV OUT)
I do not really know what format you are using to your TV, but test this one. add this line in your device section in the file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" or "/etc/X11/XF86Config" it depends on how new linux you use. I hope it will work.

Option "TwinView"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"
Option "TVStandard" "Pal-G"
# Maybe you need to change this line below, if you use other than SVIDEO cable
# out to your TV. Maybe you use "Composite" then change "SVIDEO" to
# "Composite".
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

# GOOD LUCK! this row you dont need to include in your XF86Config =)
