Default [TWINVIEW] TV output is in black and white

hello,

firstly my configuration:
OS: Debian testing
Kernel: 2.6.11-1-686
Video Card: Leadtek Geforce FX 5200 - AGP 8x - 128Mo DDR - TV-Out + DVI
Driver (downloaded from nvidia website) : 7676

My XFree configuration:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Carte vidéo NVIDIA"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5200"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:3:00:0"
Option "NoLogo"
Option "NoDDC" "1"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "GenerateRTList" "0"
Option "OverridePolarity" "1"
Option "CursorShadow" "on"
Option "NvAGP" "3"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "0"
Option "TwinView" "true"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024,1280x1024; 1024x768,1024x768; 800x600,800x600"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768 @1024x768,1024x768 @1024x768; 800x600 @800x600,800x600 @800x600; 640x480 @640x480,640x480 @640x480"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-N"
Option "TVOverScan" "1.0"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
EndSection


When I try to use the twinview with the above configuration I have already only a black and white output on the TV!

When I unset the CRT monitor with the following option : Option "ConnectedMonitor"
"TV"
the TV output works fine. Then, when I configure XFree for 2 separate monitors, the TV output woks fine.

Finally, This XFree configuration worked fine with and old video card

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Alexandre Touret

PS.: I had submitted a bug via email linux-bugs@nvidia.com but I have no response.

Hmm, I'm having same problem. Can't get color picture on TV-Out at all. On FC2 x86_64 with 6xxx nvidia driver this worked flawless. ?
