-----------------Save to XF86config_tv so you know what XF86config to use

 

 

 

**************Import***********************

make the twin view save something like XF86Config_TwinView.bak

make the tv out, XFConfig_TVOUT_Only.bak

 

this way you can do something like cp XF86Config_TwinView.bak XF86Config

this way you can switch back and forth... and make a XF86Config_normal.bak

so you know what your doing... ok i suck have a nice day... FAQS are not my thing... But hopefully this helps.

 

 

 

 

----FAQ Sucks... But now you'll have tv out support / twin view support

Have A Nice Day

 

Ok well that's all i am going to right for now... -dem0nk1d
