Default Re: TwinView : 3 problems...

I have the same problem. Is a bug report already open?

I'm using TwinView on a Dell Latitude D820 with a 1280x800 primary screen (Notebook display) and an external TFT with 1280x1024. When I have not connected the external display I switch to 1280x800 resolution with xrandr. When I then start xine with a video (Tried mpeg and divx) X freezes totally. I can't move the mouse cursor and can't switch to text console.

When I don't use xrandr to switch to single-head mode before, then the video plays without a problem.

glxinfo says I'm using the driver 2.1.0 NVIDIA 96.29

Here is an excerpt of my xorg 7.1.1 config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "NoLogo" "true"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0, CRT-0"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0, CRT-0"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
Option "UseEDID" "true"
Option "TwinView" "true"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-75"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "30-75"
Option "MetaModes" "DFP-0:1280x800,CRT-0:1280x1024; DFP-0:1280x800,CRT-0:NULL; DFP-0:1024x768,CRT-0:NULL; DFP-0:800x600,CRT-0:NULL; DFP-0:640x480,CRT-0:NULL"
Option "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-0, CRT-0"
Option "DPI" "75 x 75"
Option "UseEdidDpi" "false"
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Centered, Dithering = Default"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
Option "TripleBuffer" "true"
EndSection

I seem to have the same problem. I have a Dell Latitude D620 with a Quadro NVS 110M. I'm using Twinview, xorg.xonf attached. When I use both displays or when I use only the laptop display I have no problems.

When I use only an external display there's also no problems, until I try to play a video, then everything freezes and I can do nothing but cut the power. This also happens when I VMWare Server starts Windows, I suspect that video overlay is causing the crash and VMWare also uses the video overlay.

I'm not aware of any instability associated with vmware, however the previous problem discussed in this thread should be fixed in the next driver release.

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: TwinView : 3 problems...

So you mean that the issue of video playback on external display only is fixed? But I suppose the next release won't arrive until sometime next year? In the meantime, are there any workarounds? I don't mind disabling every 3d feature just as long as I can use the external display.

The only method I have gotten the external display to work is using Twinview. I would love it if the dynamic laptop mode would work but it doesn't seem to work on my Dell Latitude D620. And nvidia-settings fails trying to write xorg.conf:

ERROR: Unable to determine valid vertical refresh ranges for display device 'Seiko' (GPU: Quadro NVS 110M)!

So I need to write the config myself. My current workaround is always using both displays but it's really annoying when I only see the external display.

Default Re: TwinView : 3 problems...

I was referring to the problem that Alex_K originally reported. There are actually several different, unrelated problems being discussed in this thread, and its a bit confusing to track all of them.

The issue with nvidia-settings failing to create a new xorg.conf on some notebooks will also be resolved in the next driver release. That release will likely be later this month or next.

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: TwinView : 3 problems...

Hi Lonni,

i'm sorry, it's my fault... I've reported some problems with twinview but didn't give you any log for analyzes.
So i recently changed my xorg config to 2 X servers and no Twinview.
This way video can play without freeze (i use something like "DISPLAY =:0.0; xine dvd://" and "DISPLAY =:1.0; xine dvd://), without tearing but there's a new problem : using XV video is very choppy !!! I confirm it only appears when i use XV, not with opengl. But opengl mode is not fluent enough.

I think i will open a new topic...

edit : i use 1.0-9626 driver version
