Default Dual Display with main CRT, and secondary TV-out

Hi folks, I've been trying to get dual display to work, and from the readme.txt file on nvidia's site, I've edited my XFCONFIG-4 file to this, and can not get it to work. I know I left out some of the Horiz, and Vert rates, but I'm not sure what to put for the TV-OUT. If anyone has successfully got this to work with a secondary TV display please share details: Below is my XFCONFIG-4 file:

# File generated by anaconda.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

FontPath "unix/:7100"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Also can anyone tell me if this looks pretty optimized other than the missing values for secondary twinview display? I had installed RH 7.3, and it detected the card as a G2 MX hybrid, when actually I have a G4/440MX AGP w/TVout. When I updated the drivers, I thought this would be changed, but it didn't. What values should I edit out and replace instead? Other than that it's not a big deal, since it still works fine. I'm thinking the G2 designation is just the description and really has no effect. Since I'm a newb, I'm not sure though. Any comments and assistance greatly appreciated.
