Default Can't get dual-head display working

Hi everyone. I've been wrestling with this for quite a while. I am running FC6, and I'm trying to get a dual-head setup working on my eVGA GeForce FX5500 setup. I have a 19" LCD monitor connected through VGA out and a 27" analog TV through the S-Video port.

I'd like to be able to pipe mythtv to the TV on a separate X screen (no TwinView) with DISPLAY=":0.1" mythfrontend, but as you can see from the nvidia bug log attached below, it's not detecting the TV, even though I think my xorg.conf looks OK.

The LCD monitor works just fine.

Relevant lines from /var/log/Xorg.0.log are below, and I've attached the full bug report. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Pete
