Default Tearing-effects with 177.80 in intrepid amd64

Hello everyone!!!!

Iḿ so frustrated. I have a 9600gt card from nvidia. Iḿ running on ubuntu intrepid ibex 8.10 amd64. I have the driver 177.80 installed. I have also compiz effects on (doesn't matter though) and synk to v-blank activated in ccsm.
The nvidia-settings are default hardware settings. I have two monitors and use twinmode + clone in the resolution 1360x768.

Now to the problem!!! Everytime I play video ( I have tried every known player there is for linux) my picture shows tearing effects. I have also change between xvideo,x11,gl,gl2 video-output.
If i go to nvidia-setttings and change synk to x-server to the other screen it works on my lcd
LG LC55. But after reboot itś the same again and i have to switch in the nvidia-settings to the other monitor, save and quit and then back to my lcd again (X-server Xvideo settings and then synk to vblank) to work properly.

I have a picture to easily show my problem.

nvidia-settings saves it's configuration to ~/.nvidia-settings-rc, but those settings aren't automatically applied during startup. Add something like this to any autostart mechanism (after X is loaded):

Code:
nvidia-settings --load-config-only

Will they ever make it so whatever screen you are on it will automatically sync each frame to that monitor like in Windoze?
For example, in Windoze I can play something using VLC stretched across both monitors and there is no tearing or either.

I'm sure they would, but this is a limitation of X.org and not the drivers AFAIR.
