Perhaps the refresh rates used for screen2 are incorrect, check those.

Another thing you can do (if you didn't do that yet) is to set the option ConnectedMonitor to for example "CRT, CRT" or "CRT,TV" or "CRT, DFP" depending on the configuration you use.

Thumbs up blue CRT is now perfect

hi

the problem was i connected 2 monitors and a TV to the graphics board.

Removing the TV cable did make the two monitors work fine.
And the TV works fine with one monitor and one TV but not when 2 monitors are connected.

Can i have a TV and 2 CRT's connected?

You can only use 2 of them at the same time. Perhaps it is a driver bug. (Make sure you specifiy ConnectedMonitor "CRT, CRT")

and how to map it.

I want to make use of the /dev/fb0 and /dev/fb1
i have the /dev/fb0 enabled
but the /dev/fb1 is not enabled. can anyone tell me how to enable the second framebuffer device.

Thanks in advance,

Prakash

Actually there is no way to use multiple fb's with nvidia's cards... If you REALLY need that feature, look at matrox for help...
BUT
Please post why you need that feature... There may be a good work around for you
