Default dual view with dvi/tv-output :: need advice


I bought a nec LCD and use the dvi-out.

Now, I'm not to able to get the tv-output to work again.
(it worked really good before)

I tested several configurations and several versions of the nvidia-driver. All without success.

There are a few threads to this subject, but none with a solution. One big problem is: the tv-out becomes the first screen so the login-screen appears on the tv.
That's not practicable. TwinView doesn't work either.
If I use the analog-output for the lcd the problem disappear. But that's no solution, I need the dvi-output.

If anybody has got dual-view with working dvi- and tv-out, please send me a mail with your config (don.andeATgmx.de) post it here.

Perhaps, you could have a look at my config-file, maybe there is a mistake in it, I've overseen.

Thanks in advance (and sorry for my poor english )
greetings Andreas

As you already noticed the tvout is the first head in this type of twinview. The connectedmonitor option needs to look like this: Option ConnectedMonitor "TV, DFP"

There's unfortunately no way to switch this at the moment.
