Default Help with TwinView

I have configured my nvidia geforce2 video card for twinview, but nothing comes up on my monitor.
I have attached a section of my XFree86config if anyone can point out an error somewhere.


Section "Files"

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"


Section "Device"
Identifier "NV AGP TwinView"
VendorName "nvidia"
Driver "nvidia"
# update this with the PCI id of your card. Consult the output
# of the 'lspci' command. The BusID is usually optional when
# only using one graphics card.
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

Option "NvAGP" "1"
# sample twinview setup
Option "TwinView" "True"
# be sure to replace the HorizSync and VertRefresh with correct values
# for your monitor!
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "crt,crt"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I"

Default README file

Isn't all the information needed for TwinView provided with the readme file included with the driver?

What are you doing ?

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "crt,crt"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I"

Do you want to setup tv-out or dual monitors ?

Please check your XFree86Log first.

Hi Guys,

I can now get it to work. The problem was with the following line--- Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"

I have removed the 1024x768,1024x768; entry and now everything works fine. Apparently not all TVs support this format.

(Option "ConnectedMonitor" "crt,crt"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I") are there because I needed both tv-out and dual monitors.
