Default TV as Dual Monitor not working

Hi All
I have just upgraded to ubuntu hardy heron 64bit and I am trying to get a dual monitor setup configured.

I have the latest drivers for my 8600GT and when I initially installled them I had the optiong of configuring my TV as the second monitor, I configured it in Xserver to twinview then restarted.

The bad news is that it did not work and now there is no longer any option under xserver for any dual monitor let alone a tv.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this?
