Default FX 5700 troubles with separate screen TV out


Ok, here we go: i'm running Gentoo Linux with my GeForce FX5700 (driver 100.14.09, kernel 2.6.20) and i'm trying to get working two displays (CRT and TV) at the same time.

I tried to get them working with twinview, i tryed to make separate screens and i only got working one display.

Ok, i thought that my SVIDEO tvout doesn't work at all, i made xorg.conf with only one screen, which was configured to TV-out. And i got picture on TV display. But when i try to configure both displays working, i get working only CRT display. Xorg.0.log says, that:

(EE) NVIDIA(1): The requested configuration of display devices (TV-0) in
(EE) NVIDIA(1):     MetaMode "640x480" is not supported on this GPU;  is
(EE) NVIDIA(1):     recommended, instead.
(WW) NVIDIA(1): 
(WW) NVIDIA(1): Unable to validate any modes; falling back to the default mode
(WW) NVIDIA(1):     "nvidia-auto-select".
(WW) NVIDIA(1): 
(EE) NVIDIA(1): The requested configuration of display devices (TV-0) in

(EE) NVIDIA(1):     GPU;  is recommended, instead.
(EE) NVIDIA(1): Unable to use default mode "nvidia-auto-select".
or something like that....

My last attempts you can see at nvidia-bug-report.log

I don't know what to do...

P.S. nvidia-settings util didn't help at all.
