Default Driver 9625 - TV not detected at startup, but nv-settings does


I read that many people were experiencing trouble with TV-out. Apparently there's a workaround available by adding the ConnectedMonitor option.

My setup is simply a LCD + TV connected via SVIDEO.

I applied the workaround but that didn't work. The funny thing is that in the log I see that the nvidia driver cannot find the tv (it repeatedly says there's only a crt connected) but when I run nvidia-settings and press detect devices, the tv shows up in the screen layout box and can be configured. I wrote an xorg.conf file with the tv in twinview & seperate screen mode, but when I restart X only the LCD works.

Anyway, why is the TV not detected when X startsup, while nvidia-settings' detect devices does find it?
