Default Dual LCDs with one agp card, tv-out ONLY with a second PCI card... possible?

I have a GeForce FX 5600 XT (AGP) and a GeForce FX 5200 (PCI). My BIOS is set so that the AGP card is my primary display device. Now, what I want to do is use two LCD monitors on the AGP card, and JUST the TV-out feature on the second PCI card. Is this possible? I am able to modify my xorg.conf (using x11 6.7) to have either just the two LCDs show picture from the AGP card, or just have the TV show picture from the PCI card, however I can't get both to work at the same time. A link to my xorg.conf file is below...

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thank you all in advance

Do you want to setup them all for the same X server ?
If running multiple X servers, I'm surprised it doesn't work.
If running a single X server, I'd be surprised triple-view would ever work.

Well, I have my xorg.conf setup so that my two LCDs are display :0.0 using the TwinView optiion, and my TV is display :0.1. Like I said, though, I can only get X to display on one or the other, not both. Again, I have two separate cards; one is an AGP and the other a PCI, both nVIDIA. Is it even possible to use the nvidia driver twice in a X config file (ie: two separate cards)?

Anybody..?

I was just told by somebody that you cannot use the nvidia driver with more than one video card at a time. Can anyone confirm this?
