ullgren: are none of the TVOut settings saved to your .nvidia-settings-rc file?

You *should* be able to run this:

nvidia-settings -a TVSaturation=<val>

to set the TV saturation from the commandline.

I can't agree more with the reply that had asked for twinview support.

I'm on a dual Xeon workstation with a 6800 ultra (and have another workstation with a 1300) and just today I had my main SGI monitor finally go tits up after 4 years of good service. Since I had matching GDM-4011P monitors till now it wasn't much of an issue. Settings we're pretty straightforward.

Now I am forced to work with mis-matched GDM-20E21 and a GDM-4011P running twinview and I can't even get them to play together on this card.

Maybe it's just me and my being a knucklehead, but I tried just about everything and nothing. Either one would work or the other but not both at the same time.

If the nvidia-settings utility had the ability to update the xorg.conf file I would be MUCH happier. I would even be happy if it just spit out a text file with monitor and twinview settings that I could paste into my xorg.conf file.

Googling around for the right settings is an exercise in frustration because they all seem to conflict with one another... some from hacks some from people who know what they're doing, but who's to know one from the other?

Seems like a trivial issue and if they would just put someone on it it seems it could be solved in a hurry.

[here's my old xorg.conf] if anyone has a good idea on getting it to work with one GDM-4011P and another GDM-20E21 I would be greatful!

I guess this thread should be a sticky one.

I don't need this in the KDE Control Center but would like to see a NVIDIA driver control panel in the start menu (KMenu). Novell already provides one for ATI users with SuSE Linux Pro 9.3 (ie: "KMenu > System > Configuration > ATI Control"). Having a GUI tool that is user friendly similar to what Windows users experience would be ideal.

Default Re: Official NVIDIA Linux control panel feedback thread

I seem to have similar problems to Ullgren, in that none of the settings for my TV is saved. Previously, I was able to do a workaround by manually setting them with (for example) "nvidia-settings -a TVSaturation=5" in a script to reset TV settings at every boot, but this no longer works. I get

"ERROR: Error querying valid values for attribute 'TVSaturation' on proton:0.0 specified in assignment 'TVSaturation=5' (Attribute not available)."

I've done a reinstall since last time it worked, so I don't know what exactly caused it to stop working.

Hi Zander:

I would just like to add that I really appreciate the nvidia-settings panel.
It's a big help for a semi-newbie like me.

That being said, I would like to see 3 critical things added:

1. Resolution settings
2. TV-OUT settings
3. Twinview settings

I think it makes sense to put as first priority those settings that are confusing
or complicated first. Since configuring the above 3 functions can be
extremely cryptic and confusing, especially for the inexperienced, I believe
the above items should be put as higher priority.

BTW, I DO realize that X does not have any built-in facility for changing
resolutions on the fly, but if xvidtune can do it, so can nvidia, I think.

I am working on machines that will be sold to customers. And I believe the
above 3 things will sell a whole lot more nvidia cards in those boxes. Oh, and
when you have time, PureVideo support would be the ultimate feature over
ATI cards.


Thanks

shplad

That's not correct. X can change resolutions on the fly via the randr extension. If you like a graphical tool you could use krandrtray (if you use kde; I'm sure there is something similar to this tool in gnome, etc) or use xrandr from console ('man xrandr' for help)

Anyway: Seeing support for TwinView an TV-out in nvidia-settings would be cool

For easy configuration you could also check yanc42: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=55402

I have a dual monitor setup with two Apple 23" cinema displays. I'm running them with 'twin view' and I would also like to have separate color controls so that I can match the two monitors better.
