Default Dual monitor + TV out both ..Is possible ?

Hello.

I would like to use my 2 monitors (with a shared desktop) and clone one of the screens to my TV-out .....

Cards as FX 5900 has the thee outputs, but I don't know how to configure the XFree to use that kind of config (with TwinView you only can config 2 displays, not three)

Do anyone knows a way ? Thanks for your time and sorry for my english.

The videocard can output to a maximum of two displays at the same time, so what you want is not possible.

Thanks for the answer..
Do anyone know a card wich allows this (I think the ATI ones can use the three outputs at same time but their XFreee implementation for shared desktop (they call it 'big desktop') is horrible)

The only cards which can do this is the matrox parhelia all other cards have only two ramdacs because of which they can only drive two displays. Your best option is to add an extra PCI/PCI-Express videocard.
