Default loss of resolution when also displaying on tv: normal?

hello all,

for my GeForce FX5200 I have two separate X-configs, one for only my CRT, and one for both CRT and TV.

with the second config file TVout works, but with a small loss of resolution on the CRT.

is this normal, for example because the screen has to be copied twice, instead of once?

greetings, and thanks in advance for any answer,
D.

Nope, plenty fast to push a tv, too. When you decided to use metamodes, your cutting the resolution of your monitor to that of your tv. Think of it like this:
Option "MetaModes" " monitor_1,tv_1;monitor_2,tv_2;monitor_3,tv_3"
Just leave your settings for the monitor at 1280x1024 for each if that is what you prefer. Your tv settings, if I remember correctly should be 480x440, maybe someone else has that info handy. Or you could google.
Good Luck!
