Default (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to read mapping of display devices to CRTCs

I get this error when I try to use twinview with Option ConntectedMonitor "crt, dfp". I did a search on this forum and found that there is a problem with mixing crt's and dfp's.

Using 2 separate X screens work just fine, and using twinview in "the other" operating system also works.

I just wanted to ask if there were any plans on adding support for this (mixed crt and dfp)?

And if yes, then when is it expected?

I just want to know if I should go out and get a new dfp->crt conversion thingy... I lost the one that came with the card...

Dident buy a thingy, but got it to work anyway...

Just commented out my

Option "ConnectedMonitors" "crt,dfp"

line and added:

Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "0"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"

Hope this helps someone else....
