Default Re: Configuration question (Twinview+TV)

To understand better, which configuration I use at the moment, I will
post my 2 xorg.conf files (only the device-section):

xorg.conf for two monitors: (TV does not work)

Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "NVIDIA Corporation"
        BoardName   "GeForce 6600"
        Option      "RenderAccel" "true"
        Option      "DisableGLXRootClipping" "true" 
        Option      "BackStoring" "true"
        Option      "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"

        Option      "TwinView" "true"
        Option      "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, CRT, TV"
        Option      "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
        Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
        Option      "HWCursor" "On"
        Option      "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1024x768"
        Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
xorg.conf for one monitor and tv:

Code:
Section "Device"
 
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "NVIDIA Corporation"
        BoardName   "GeForce 6600"
        Option      "RenderAccel" "true"
        Option      "DisableGLXRootClipping" "true" #Fix Black windows
        Option      "BackStoring" "true"
        Option      "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
 
        Option      "TwinView" "true"
        Option      "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
        Option      "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
        Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        # Option   "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"

        Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
        Option      "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.0 - 55.0"
        Option      "HWCursor" "On"
        Option      "MetaModes" "1280x1024,800x600"
        Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
A perfect solution would be to be able to switch the second monitor to tv-mode (clone-mode) via hotkey. Is that possible by using the meta-modes in the xorg.conf ?

Sorry for some typos, I'm German.
