Default tv-out only --> vga out dead

Hi all),
i'm experiencing a problem with my GeForce2 MX 400. The problem is this one: i set up X to use only the tv-out SVIDEO connector to show the desktop on my tv (and mplayer do the rest heheh)); when i do so my monitor become black, as it should be, and everything works fine, the problem is that once x has started if i try switch to consoles
(ctrl+atl+fN ) or exit X my monitor remain black. It should be noted the my machine dont hangs couse, for example, if i exit X (my monitor remain black) and switch to a console where i logged as root and give the "shutdown -h now" command pc power off normally. All this didn't happen with old drivers before 4363.
So i argue it should be a problem regarding the the video board who cannot "reactivate" the vga out connector and drivers >=4363.
My configuration is this one:
- Asus v7100, GeForce2 MX 400
- driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496
- using slackware 9.0
- Video BIOS:
- processor Pentium III 500
- motherboard Asus P3B-F (chipset 440BX)

I attach the XF86Config i use for tv-out.
Thx in advace for any help guys... see ya)

Did you get to the bottom of this?

I'm having simular problems. I'm trying to twinview my TV and monitor. I can get the TV to work using "ConnectedMonitor" "TV" but my monitor reports an out of scan range problem (so won't display) If I set "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV" nothing happens to the TV. Can anyone help?

I've included the config file and 2 log files of when the TV works, and when neither work.

I also had a simular problem. My monitor also recieved an "out of range" message. This was however because my card out of some unkown reason switched to DVI output.

Anyway, doing the following works for me:

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP"
# Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
