Unhappy can't get twinview/tvout to work

t-bird 1.2
gigabyte board (sorry, was a gift dunno model)
256 meg pc-100 ram
powercolor geoforce 2 32meg

driver 1.0-4363

TV-out works fine under wxp (hate it tho)

was trying this for tv-out:

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

Hey there

Have you tried to set these settings under device in your XF86config file :

Option "TwinView" "true"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,800x600; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

Maybe you have to change the TVstandard value, "PAL-B" is for Belgium.
And when that doesn't work try instead of "SVIDEO" , "COMPOSITE".
That were the problems I had, everything is fine on my pc now
.

Let me know if it works.


Greetzzzz
