    Xorg with Nvidia TwinView TV?

    I've been trying to configure my xorg.conf for use with the nvidia driver's "TwinView"-option using my PAL-B TV as second display, but with no success . If somebody could post an exemple of a working xorg.conf configured for this use, I'd be really thankful. Elseways I guess I'll have to go back to using Windows to watch DVDs

    PS. I read the documentation from Nvidia, but I didn't understand enough to be able to configure the config file correctly, obviously...

    Here's my xorg.conf:
