Default TV-Out Resolution

When I want to do tv-out with my 7800GT I have to change settings in xorg conf and restart X (going from my native resolution of 1600x1200 to 800x600) - basically using the clone setting. Is there a way to stay in X with my 1600x1200 modeline and separately turning on tv-out as a separate screen? Thanks for your help.

Yes, you can setup a two-screen configuration with tv-out as the second screen.
Of course the TV will not show the same content as the main screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
