Question TVOut question ...

Hi everybody,

My Nvidia card is GeForce 2 MX 32 Mb w/ tvout.
My distro is Mandrake 9.1

I have a LCD 19" analog screen that I want to be in 1600x1200 or 1280x1024. Also, I have a TV 32" that I want to be in 800x600. I want to enable the TVOut in "Clone" mode but I want to have fullscreen @ 800x600 on TV (no pawning) and Fullscreen onto my LCD @1600x1280 at the same time. All I'm able to do now is to set the same resolution (800x600) on both. If I try to change one, I only got a virtual desktop of 800x600 @1600x1200 or just the LCD display and not the TV...

My TV purpose will be to listen DiVX movies.

Thank you, if anyone of you can give me a working XF86Config file it will be really appreciate !!

Why do you need TV-out if all your doing is "listening" to movies? Ha ha.

anyways... if you clone the displays and one is a smaller res. it will pan.

If you use this you will get 1280x1024 on your LCD and 640x480 res. on the TV. Follow?

Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,640x480;800x600,800x600;640x480,640x480 "

Any help?

the @1280x1024 is for virtual screen

but if you prefer (for easy fullscreen movies), use a second desktop by disabling xinerama
