Default FX 5900XT and TV-OUT problems

I'm trying to configure xfree in a Twinview setup. But i can't get it to work!

From my X86Fconfig-4
Section "Device"
### Available Driver options are:-
# sw_cursor is needed for some ati and radeon cards
Option "sw_cursor"
#Option "hw_cursor"
#Option "NoAccel"
#Option "ShowCache"
#Option "ShadowFB"
#Option "UseFBDev"
#Option "Rotate"
Identifier "Card0"
# The following line is auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxf86config
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "All"
BoardName "All"
# BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

## Clone
#Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-60"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-65"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768 @1024x768"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "TvOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
#Option "TvOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

When i try this configuation, i get picture on my monitor but not on my tv.
But if i edit ConnectedMonitor so that it read "TV" or "TV,CRT" i get picture on my tv, but then my monitor goes into power off mode!

There are no errors in Xfree86.0.log

How do i get tv-out to work properley so there are picture on poth monitor and tv.

I'm running knoppix 3.4 hd-install with kernel 2.6.5.
I have installed 1.0-5336 Nvidia drivere.
