Default Re: Kubuntu does not detect my tv-out

Also, why are you using the NoPowerConnectorCheck option?
No reason in particular, I was just wondering if it might force TV-out because it would perhaps skip the detection part.

It works now! Apart from this line, it was also required to set the resolution of the TV to 800x600 (or below) with the metamodes option. When I enter the same resolution for the monitor and TV, the pictures on both screens are the same. When I set the monitor to it's normal 1280x1024 resolution and the TV to 800x600, I also get a picture on both screens, but the picture on the TV is only part of what I see on the monitor.

Is it possible with Twinview to run each screen in a different resolution, but see the whole screen on both displays?

If not, perhaps it is possible with separate screens? I think it would work now (even if it did not before) with the proper resolutions specified.

If it is not possible in twinview and dual head, is there an easy way to switch resolution for 'watching TV' without changing to another xorg.conf? I don't want to work on a 800x600 screen.

Below is the current Xorg, giving me a 1280x1024 resolution on the CRT, and a partial picture in 800x600 on the TV.

Thanks, Loni, for your patience and help. I know it's quite rare for companies to give as much Linux support as Nvidia is doing.

You cannot display the same content on both displays if they are not using the same mode.
