8800 GTS and TV screen size
 
I've connected my brand new 8800 GTS to my TV on SVIDEO output. ( The tv only accepts SVIDEO.)

It seems that the picture sent to the TV is too big and I dont see any way of changing it to a smaller size, so I can see it. I've tried 800x600, 1024x768, both wrong. (TV has no changeable parameter regarding picture size, so my only choice would be on my PC.)

Is there a way to improve it in xorg.conf, set something like modeline? Any ideas how to change TV output picture size in my Xorg?

I have the same problem. The way it works for me is adjusting both screens (TFT and TV) with the same resolution (1024x768).
I am with GF6200 and Slackware-current (Xorg 7.2).

Weird, indeed! I use to have good tvout with my GF7600GT and GF6800... I thought it's a 8800GTS thing.

Also I noticed that changing contrast/brightness in nvidia-settings on screen0 affects screen1 too and vica versa. Quite a step backward after my good working 7600GT...
