Unhappy Minor annoyance with tv-out

I've succesfully used the attached XF86Config to start a secondary x-server which I can use to watch movies.
This works fine, but its a bit annoying that when the secondary x-server starts, the monitor "switches" (the familiear "click" sound when it switches resolutions) a few times before starting the server.
This is, of course, a minor problem I can live with but I was hoping someone had a solution to this problem. Here are the last couple of lines from my log file, which I guess are the ones of interest:

(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)
(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768,1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX

I have a Geforce4 TI4200 running on Suse 8.1
Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks.

Default

What might help is to read Appendix R of the driver REAME. (or whatever the letter is now)

It contains another way of twinview. In a way that each head of your videocard has its own X Display, so that two servers aren't needed..

Good luck.
