Default When will nvidia-settings include TV-OUT and Twinview settings?

Hi all:

Well, I think there has been some great strides in progress with Linux drivers for nVidia video cards. The nvidia-settings is a nice achievement, and is well appreciated. However, I am still wondering...

Is nvidia going to release a set of drivers one of these days that has all the features in the GUI as its Windows equivalent (ie. Tv-OUT, Twinview etc.)?
For us newbies, it's pretty challenging to be reconfiguring via a text file.

Zander, are you out there?

thanks

I imagine that part of the problem is that X doesn't have a good system for dynamic adding a display (such as for TV-out) after it's started.

So either we can have nvidia-settings providing some tv-out settings and then require X to be restarted, or we will have to wait until X provides some way for dynamic adding displays.

What I wonder is how Nvidia is looking at this thing. What is going on on this front? Do they have any plans? Do they have a dialog with Freedesktop (or the X.org Foundation)?

I don't understand what the problem would be. All you need is the root password an X restart. Is that so hard to implement? I mean yeah you can't do it on the fly like Windows, but it shouldn't matter that much.

You could try and test yanc (http://www.ygriega.de/index.php?id=2&detail=1). The Author posted this tool here some time ago and was asking for testers.
