Default TwinView nVidia Geforce Fx5200 in FC8

Hello,
In FC8, with my Video Card GeForce Fx5200 and TwinView, I can see my PC screen on the TV.
But I have a black-white TV screen and a smaller resolution, so I only can see 75% of my PC screen.

Some configuration data:
1. My PC display:
Resolution 1280 x 1024
Millions of colours
Hardware:
nvidia-Vendor supplied driver for nvidia cards
2. Nvidia X Server Settings
Layout: LG 1280x1024

My /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
[gastonv@telenetPC ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "single head configuration"

        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

        Option      "XkbLayout" "be"
EndSection

EndSection

        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
                Modes    "800x600"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option      "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
By starting a TwinView with the TV, then my PC screen becomes automatically in a higher resulution.
Perhaps is that the reason why I can not watch the whole PC screen on the TV ...
A reboot without TV connection gives the normal PC screen again.

With FC6 I had no problem. But with FC8 I can not use the same /ect/X11/xorg.conf.

Thanks in advance for helping tips,
Gaston Verhulst.
