TwinView with TV while 2 CRTs attached [Solved]
 
I have a geforce 6600 with 2 VGA monitors attached (LCD and a CRT, but LCD doesn't support DVI). Normally I run in dual screen on these two using twinview. I'd like a config setup so I can watch movies etc on the TV but still use one of my one of my monitors to do work.

My normal config uses
Code:

    Screen      0
    Option    "TwinView"
    Option    "MetaModes"  "1280x1024,1280x1024; 1280x1024,nulll"
    Option    "TwinViewOrientation"      "RightOf"
    Option    "SecondMonitorHorizSync"  "31.5 - 80.5"
    Option    "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60-75"
    Option    "SecondMonitorHorizSync"  "30 - 96"
    Option    "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50 - 160"
    Option    "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0,CRT-1"

For my TV/LCD combo config I've tried (full config attached):
Code:

    Screen      0
    Option    "TwinView"
    Option    "MetaModes"  "1280x960,800x600"
    Option    "TwinViewOrientation"      "LeftOf"
    Option    "SecondMonitorHorizSync"  "30-50"
    Option    "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
    Option    "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
    Option    "TVStandard"  "NTSC-M"
    Option    "Xinerama"    "on"
    Option    "AllowGLXWithComposite"
# Use only the TV
    Option    "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-2,TV"

but it still wants to use the LCD/CRT. Disconnect the other monitor, it works on the LCD/TV just fine. What am I doing wrong?

EDIT:
Code:

Option    "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-2,TV"
should be
Code:

Option    "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0,TV"
