Default ASUS Geforce FX 5200 9520 Magic TV-out Problem


I have some problems with this card. I can't get the tv-out to work with twinview and nvtv didn't regonize the card. What I'm doing wrong ? I use SuSE 8.2 and the latest nvidia driver (4496).

Here my XF86Config Section :

Section "Device"
BoardName "0x0322"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "NoRenderAccel"
Option "TwinView" "on"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,800x600;1024x768,800x600"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Screen 0
VendorName "NVidia"

Please, please help !!

I bought exactly the same card (ASUS V9520/TD) with a FX 5200 chip (lspcidrake tells me it's a 0x0322 => FX5200). I can't get it to work under Mandrake 9.2 (updated) with drivers ver5336 from mandrakeclub.com. I already tried with my old XF86Config-4 from a Geforce 4 MX440 as well as editing the twinview options myself.
The funny thing is I that I get perfect tv output from the very beginning until my login manager pops up (Mandrake uses Framebuffer during start-up), then the usual black screen...
Hardware? AthlonXP 2000, 512MB RAM, analogue 18'' flat screen.
Any help appreciated, thanks.
