Default Help! 5200, TV-Out, soooo close

Hi folks,

I've attached my current configuration. I'm soooo close.

Using 5200, and trying to drive TV-out via S-VIDEO/NTSC-M. The pertinent part of my xorg.conf is:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier		"Videocard0"
	Driver			"nvidia"
	VendorName		"NVIDIA Corporation"
	BoardName		"GeForce FX 5200"
	BusID			"PCI:1:0:0"
	Option			"UseDisplayDevice" "CRT"
	Screen          0
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier		"Videocard1"
	Driver			"nvidia"
	VendorName		"NVIDIA Corporation"
	BoardName		"GeForce FX 5200"
	BusID			"PCI:1:0:0"
	Option 			"ConnectedMonitor"  "TV,CRT"
	Option			"UseDisplayDevice" "TV"
	#Option			"IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
	Option			"NoLogo" "1"
	Option			"RenderAccel" "true"
	Option			"TripleBuffer" "true"

	Option			"TwinView" "1"
	Option			"TwinViewOrientation"		"RightOf"
	Option			"TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
	Option			"TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
	Option			"MetaModes" "800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480;"
	Screen          1
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	# HorizSync source: edid, VertRefresh source: edid
	Identifier		"CRT"
	VendorName		"Unknown"
	ModelName		"STN S/T 77/76DFX"
	Option			"DPMS"
	Option 			"BlankTime" 	"120" 
	Option 			"StandbyTime" 	"120" 
	Option 			"SuspendTime" 	"120" 
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier 		"TV"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier		"Screen0"
	Device			"Videocard0"
	Monitor			"CRT"
	DefaultDepth 	24
	Subsection "Display"
		Depth		24
		Modes		"1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubsection
	Option 			"AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
	Option 			"DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier		"Screen1"
	Device			"Videocard1"
	Monitor			"TV"
	DefaultDepth	24
	Option			"metamodes" "TV: 800x600 +0+0; 640x480 +0+0"
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth		24
		Modes		"800x600_60" "640x480_60"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier		"WithoutTV"
	Screen		0	"Screen0"		0		0
	InputDevice		"Keyboard0"		"CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice		"Mouse0"		"CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier		"WithTV"
	Screen		0	"Screen0"		0		0
	Screen		1	"Screen1"		RightOf		"Screen0"
	InputDevice		"Keyboard0"		"CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice		"Mouse0"		"CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier		"JustTV"
	Screen		0	"Screen1"		0		0
	InputDevice		"Keyboard0"		"CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice		"Mouse0"		"CorePointer"
EndSection
I can startx -layout WithoutTV (works fine), startx -layout JustTV (works fine -- linux screen over SVIDEO). However, I can't seem to combine the two.

When I try the WithTV layout, I get this error:
Code:

I'm looking for a solution where I can run MythTV out the TV-Out.

Pointers, please? Going on 3 days of fighting this....

TIA
