Default TV Out Config

I am having some issues with TV out and the Linux driver. It works fine in Windows so I suspect it's my config, though I have not had problems configuring a monitor with twinview and dual server.

I have a Dell Laptop 1920x1200. A NVidia GeForce Go5200 graphics card as well as a 51cm TV. I connect with a SVideo to RCA adaptor.

With the device section below I can get output to the TV, but I can only get one display at a time depending on how I configure the metamodes. I can have the display on the flat panel by having the metamodes as is. I can have the display on the TV by swaping the resolution in the metamode. That is, Option "MetaModes" "800x600", 1920x1200". Can anyone see something wrong here?
# Device Section

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard-DFP"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "Videocard Vendor"
	BoardName   "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"

# Enabling Twinview
	Option "TwinView" 
  	Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync"     "30-50"
  	Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh"   "60"
  	Option "MetaModes" "1920x1200, 800x600"
  	Option "TwinViewOrientation"        "DFP-0 LeftOf TV-0"
  	Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
I would prefer to use dual servers with the TV I think but I am not having any luck there either.

I have attached a bug report as well if that helps. Cheers.

ps the log file was too big so I deleted the stuff about the driver install.
