GeForce3 and tv out issue
i've read on this forum that i am not able to use twinview with my graphic card.
then, i've done another XF84Config file.
after that i connected the tv-out of the geforce3 to the composite-in of my bt878 tv card. (just in a testing purpose)
and when i do the "startx -- :1 -xf86config XF86Config-4.tv"
the X screen turns blank (but the two instances of X are running)
my question is : is it impossible to have the two outputs (vga and composite-tv) at the same time? or is there something i missed?
here are the important sections of my XF86Config :
Option "CursorShadow" "true"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-N"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Modes "800x600" "640x480"

finally, i unplugged my computer and moved it next to the tv, connected it, and powered it up.
firstly, i was impressed by the fact that my graphic card managed to give a correct output on the tv w/o configuration, i could login, and run the startx -- :1 -xf86config XF86Config-4.tv perfectly. the only "little" problem is that after i switched to X, my keyboard went completely unusable.
has anyone an idea about this?
