Default TwinView on FX5200


I've searched the forum and found a few other posts about this problem but none of them provide any answers.

I have a GeForce FX5200 card with 2 CRT monitors connected (one of them on the DVI port with a converter). I have twinview configured but when I start X both monitors display the same image.
The mouse can be moved out of the left side of the screen so I assume twinview is enabled.

If I adjust "Digital Vibrance" in 'nvidia-settings' the adjustment in "CRT-0" changes both displays while nothing happens when adjusting "CRT-1".

Is there anyway to get this to work or do I need a better card?

Card: Nvidia GeForce FX5200 (128MB/AGP)
Driver version: 1.0-6629
Debian Unstable with kernel 2.6.9
Video BIOS:

XF86Config-4 device:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "50.0-89.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50.0-141.0"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024"

I am having the same problem as well - I can get a single monitor working and can get image in the second but am not able to actually work with or move into the second monitor. I have tried multihead config and twinview but so far not much luck.

Using GeForce 4200 Ti 8XAGP card.

One thing you might want to look into is the identification of the DVI port. In the Nvidia read me for the latest drivers it indicates that any monitor hooked up via the DVI port (say via an adapter) is considered differently from CRT and needs to be identified as DFP "CRT 0, DFP 0" this might assist you - so far I am going nuts trying to figure this out.

Hey guys, I'm having the same problem you are, except I'm trying to connect my TV so I can do overlay. I like having my computer as my entertainment center. I have now clue how to set it up though. Any suggestions?
