Default GeForce2 MX, TV-out, twinview problems.

Hello.

I'm trying to use twin-view to get 1152x864 on by crt-monitor and 800x600 on my TV. But I end up getting 1152x864 also on the TV, i.e. I see parts of the whole 1152x864 screen on the TV. Is it possible to have different resolutions on the crt-screen and the TV? Below is parts of my XF86Config-file:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce2 DDR (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "MetaModes" "1152x864, 800x600 @1152x864; 1024x768, 1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-G"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "TwinView"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "screen1"
Device "device1"
Monitor "monitor1"
DefaultColorDepth 24

Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
#Virtual 1152 864
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"
Depth 15
#Virtual 1152 864
EndSubsection

Subsection "Display"

EndSubsection

Modes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
#Virtual 1152 864
EndSubsection
EndSection

Default Re: GeForce2 MX, TV-out, twinview problems.

since you "clone" your display, the resolutions for both displays are the same. Yet your TV works in a 800x600 resolution, "emulating" a 1152x864 mode. (you see a 800x600 section of your 1152x864 on your TV, if I fully understand you) that's what the panning domains are for : (800x600 _@1152x864_)

If you want to use different display resolutions, don't use the "clone" orientation.
