Default SVIDEO via nvidia-settings TwinView

Small bug i presume.

Twinview is working fine with my tv after editing xorg.conf and passing lines
Option "TwinView" "True"
        Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
        Option "MetaModes" "1440x900,1024x768; 640x480,640x480"
        Option         "UseEdidFreqs" "True"
        Option         "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        Option         "TVStandard" "PAL-G"
        Option         "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP, TV"
But, when i comment out TwinView and TwinViewOrientation in xorg.conf and try to use the nvidia-settings tool to configure my tv i got this one problem or bug.

As you all know u can activate twinview and tvout without actually editing xorg.conf or restarting X, which is a great feature, but the problem lies in that when you use nvidia-settings to activate TV-out(twinview). The picture is black and white.

Is this a problem with nvidia-settings, that lacks options Tvoutformat and TVStandard (which work in xorg.conf) so it doesn't display color picture on TV ?

Since i get everything nice and working by editing xorg.conf and restarting X, it would be nice if i could do it form nvidia-settings gui (i presume everyone else), with color, without restarting X. (just like in windows )
Card is 7600gs, distribution is Ubuntu Feisty, but i guess it doesn't matter.
Latest drivers.

Thx for your replay and sorry for the long post.
