Default Unable to configure twinview on CRT and DFP


I have the following configuration:
2 Nvidia graphics cards with each 1x DVI-Out and 1x VGA-Out.
For each graphics card I have connected the same monitors (1xTFT and 1xCRT). The TFT should be a clone of the TFT so I configured them as Twinview Clones.

The second card is configured exactly the same. My goal is to have 2 X screens (no twinview), each screen consisting of two monitors on clone configuration.

But the way I configured only the DFP-0 of GPU-0 shows a picture. All other devices stay off.
Note that display autodetection does not work for me for some reason, so I have to work with "ConnectedMonitors".
I have also captured the display's EDIDs to be sure that the correct modelines are being set.

The most confusing thing is however the Xorg.0.log output for GPU-1 (the second card).
I set ConnectedMonitors "DFP-0, CRT-0", but it seems to ignore that and reports CRT-1, which I'm sure is wrong.

Please have a look at my xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log . Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, Hans
