Default tvout issue

i been trying to get a geforce 6600 to display tv-out but it just blanks out the tv. i tried so many differnt ways to configure xorg and nothing. It works good in vesa and the nv driver just totaly screws up the screen Even bsd does the same. Windows works perfectly. Any suggestions on what could be wrong or do i need to setup two screen options?

Default Re: tvout issue

I've been having the same issue with both my GeForce 3, and Geforce 2 cards. It just will not display properly in X. If I boot the pc with only the TV plugged in, the console will show up fine, but no matter what I do to my xorg.conf X just shows black on the TV.

This is highly frustrating. I'm pretty sure it has to do with th options for horizontal and vertical sync and/or resolutions, but all the nvidia tvout howto's I've looked at do nothing for me.
