Default Twinview widscreen problem

Hey everyone,

I have just got my self a new 22" acer widscreen monitor.
I have it setup in twinview with a 17" LCD.
I am trying to get th 22" to work at its natural 1680x1050 res with my 17" running at 1280x1024.
For some reason the monitor turns off when i try this combo of res. I can get each monitor to work individually at these res.

Here is some of the xorg.conf
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31.5 - 60.7"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60 - 75"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1680x1050"

I have had twinview with 2 17" LCD working fine in the past.
At he moment I have it running at "1280x1024,1024x768", it will let me do that.
PS(i have got it to work in windows)
