Question Question to TV-Out / Twinview /xfree

Hi,

I'm using a Geforce 4 MX 440 with TV-Out under XFree 4.3.0

I tested around a lot to get the TV working, and some things seem to be impossible. Maybe someone here can help me.

1) First try, 2 Devices, 2 Screens, 2 Monitors in the XF86Config. Starting 2 X-Servers, one on the CRT, one on the TV. That works, but there are several probs like lirc, users etc.

2) 2 Devices, 2 Screens, 2 Monitors, 1 Serverlayout

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"

    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    Screen "TV" RightOf "Screen 1"
gives me

about 20 of those lines.

The best may would be, having 1 X-Server and 2 Screens, one of them the CRT with 1024x786 and the TV with 800x600 (PAL).
Is that possible, and how?

And Third, what I read about a lot, the Twinview-Options. Is there a good Manual/Howto on how to use these Options?

Greets,
Eike
