TV-OUT works but how to change/set desktop size..
Here's my situation:
Got a brand new storage server..
Got a nice NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 with 8X AGP with TV-OUT..
Got a 17" Samsung SyncMaster LCD..
Got a bigass TV..
Got FreeBSD 4.9..
Got the latest FreeBSD NVIDIA driver..
Got the TV-OUT working with the TwinView Clone option..
Got 2 Metamodes: "1280x1024,NULL; 832x624,800x600"
Here's my problem:
X starts with the 1280x1024 resolution (LCD 1280x1024, TV disabled)
I press "Control-Alt -" (LCD 832x624, TV 800x600)
My desktop appears on my LCD and TV with the proper LCD and TV resolutions but the desktop resolution (virtual) is still 1280x1024..
Obviously a 1280x1024 desktop doesn't fit in a 800x600 resolution so I only see a small part of my desktop..
How can I fix this so that when I switch LCD/TV resolutions my desktop resolution (virtual) switches accordingly aswell?
Thanx in ahead..

I'm not aware of a way to resize the underlying virtual desktop space when switching resolutions. I was under the impression from some earlier posts, and other resources that doing so isn't supported in a useable way (in XFree86 itself).
You might consider using two X servers instead, keeping one at the lower resolution and the other at full LCD resolution. I believe this is possible but have not done so myself. Another option might be defining a second screen on the same X server (a recent post regarding multiple screens on several monitors had some good information on setting up screens).
