Default need help configuring my monitors through console

Hi, lost my last post due to computer disobiediencer so here goes again

I've connected my computer monitor and my reciever (which pass the signal on to my TV) through the DVI connections in my GeForce card. The problem is when i boot up my computer it dosent detect my reciever, which forces me to go into nvidia-settings and press detect displays, configure it to twinview and with placement to the right in order to be able to watch things on the TV. usually when i'm finished, i need to turn this off as marking my monitor as primary display dosent work for the first time (however, second time works) and I lose my panels into the TV.

Can someone help me figure out which switches I need to use in nvidia-settings order to accomplish this? Thanks!

(...backs up post just in case...)
