Unhappy TNT and TV OUT no longer works. Error: "The requested configuration of display..."

I recently did a massive update of packages to my Gentoo box.

One of the packages that got upgraded was the nvidia driver. The driver got updated from version 4496 to version 6111.

Anway, the computer is used as a stand alone Freevo machine. It has no CRT connected, it is only connected to a TV via a composite connector.

Computer is:

ECS P6VAP-A+ (motherboard)
Celeron 600 (cpu)
Diamond Mulitmedia Viper V550 (vid card)
When I startx I get the error message:

Code:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): The requested configuration of display devices is not
(EE) NVIDIA(0):      supported in the hardware.
I don't know what this error message means. I have not been able to find anyone with a similar problem on Google.

Somebody please help,
-Nate

Hmm.. diamon viper, that's abit old, sure 32-bit even supported?

You should propably stick to the older driver since you won't get much out of it anyway.

UPDATE:

Downgraded to 4496 and everything works again.

Thanks Lithorus for all your help.
