Thumbs up Re: Driver 9625 - TV not detected at startup, but nv-settings does

You are just damn lucky. ConnectedMonitor does NOT work around this issue. With the current beta driver I can set:

a) Twinview (though I do NOT want it)
b) Separate TV
c) Separate LCD

But NO I CANNOT set them both working together (I will bug report later). If I use ConnectedMonitor option - TV wakes up and runs the second X screen (as should) but the LCD (the first X screen) goes "out of singnal" as nvidia driver sets some crazy refresh rate (for LCD) of around 141hz. Yes, nvidia driver completely ignores the refresh rates I put in the LCD Monitor section.

The funny thing - the nvidia-settings detects my TV, but I cannot use it (ConnectedMonitor does NOT help). Sorry for the long post.

PS: Would you, nvidia guys, consider the following driver options:

**Section Device**
Option "DetectMonitor" "CRT-0" # detects and uses any found CRT


**Section Device**
Option "ForceMonitor" "TV-0" # just sends the signal to the videocard's TVout (like damn old vcr do) No bloody buggy detection

PPS: I will post my bugreport later. Thanks
