Default Re: Unable to configure twinview on CRT and DFP

OK, I'm one step further now.
The reason why I could not get both, CRT and DFP to work was a semicolon instead of a comma in the metamodes string

Anyway: Now I have both screens on GPU-0 but on GPU-1 the displays don't seem to work.
here's the relevant section of Xorg.0.log:

Code:
(II) Mar 02 17:11:46 NVIDIA: Using 768.00 MB of virtual memory for indirect memory access.

What is strange is that it seems to ignore all my Options which I set in the screen/device section like ConnectedMonitor.
Did I put them in the wrong place?
Are these options global and not on a per-screen /per-device basis?
