    I have the geforce mmx440 with 64 ram, i know i know, old....
    Here's what i had to do,to get it to use the video out.

    XF86Config

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "nvidia"
    Driver "nvidia"
    # BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "NODDC" "1"
    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "tv"
    Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "dfp"
    VideoRam 64000
    # ************************************************** ********************
    # Screen sections
    # ************************************************** ********************

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen 1"
    # Identifier "TV"
    Device "nvidia"
    Monitor "My Monitor"
    Option "TwinView" "true"
    Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
    Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
    Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768; 800x600, 800x600; 640x480, 640x480"
    Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
    Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
    Worked for me....

    Notice the (Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M")
    If your TV uses PAL, change it to PAL.....
