Default TwinView and TV overscan

Hi,

I've set 'clone' to TwinViewOrientation option to get the same image from TV and CRT at the same time.
It works fine except one issue; After setting TwinView option, I cannot set TVOverScan anymore.

---
$ nvidia-settings -a TVOverScan=14

WARNING: Attribute 'TVOverScan' specified in assignment 'TVOverScan=14' is not available on mypc:0.0.
---

Here's my xorg.conf setting:
---
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)"
Option "TwinView" "1"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV, CRT"
EndSection
---

How can I use TVOverScan in this case?
Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Default Re: TwinView and TV overscan

Are you able to set the option when you use the nvidia-settings gui? Some options like TVOverscan are display specific and that's why it might not work the way you specified it right now. The way you specified it right now would set the option for both screens. You need to specify that it is for TV-0 or whatever. Check the nvidia-settings help or manpage on how to do that but first check the gui version.

Thumbs up Re: TwinView and TV overscan

The nvidia-settings gui works fine, and I've also succeded with command line

$ /usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a TVOverScan[TV]=14

Thank you very much!
