Nvida TwinView HDMI and S-Video


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just hit my 2 year anniversary as a noob with Linux.

I want to apologize in advance since this post may be a bit long, I have been at this for a week and am at a stalemate. I hope the Moderators don't mind all this detail in my question.

I am working with a HTPC (Home Theater PC) box using GenToo. This is not MythTV but a system using GenToo mainly for home theater use and is a bit stripped down. The folks that designed the system and package feel that TwinView cannot be done properly on their system and do not give technical support for TwinView. They were surprised I got this far with it.

 

The motherboard is a MSI K9MGM3 v1 with a Nvidia 6150 chipset for the video. The MB has HDMI out which I am using and it has Component(RGB) and S-Video out. The TV sizes are a Vizio 42 inch fed via HDMI and the Samsung 19 inch is fed video from a 2.4GHz A/V transmitter/receiver setup to another room of the house, S-Video is used for this.

What I am trying to accomplish is to have S-Video and HDMI out at the same time. At this time I have it working but the S-Video out is not correct. The first two images are showing the Option "MetaModes" "1920x1080 , 720x480". The second set of images is using a suggested setting of "MetaModes" "1080i , 1080i" which seems not to be the normal option. Using this setting got it a bit closer on the S-Video out. The main reason I am going through all this is that I would like to send the A/V throughout the house to different TVs. I am not worried about HD when watching this system. I have been in kind of a hurry to set all this up since I may soon be stuck in a wheelchair here and setting this up at a later time may be out of the question. I will place the xorg code in the post below. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
