nvidia tv-out freeze


I am running Arch with a geforce 7800 go on a laptop and the nvidia drivers work fine normally. I tried to use twinview to get the same thing on both a tv and the loptop screen using the clone orientation. On a previous install of Arch on the same computer, everything worked fine. Yet, with this version of the nvidia driver, it only put the output on the tv and not on the screen even though twinvieworientation is set to clone.

This isn't the major problem though. When I go to play some video with vlc, the whole system hangs. That means no ctrl-alt-backspace or ctrl-alt-del. If I switch back to only the screen, it can play video fine.

So, I'm just wondering if something major changed in the new nvidia driver or if I'm missing some X extension that lets me play video through tv-out.

By the way, I get the same problem in both the stock kernel and the beyond kernel, so I'm pretty sure it's an issue with the nvidia driver.

Another note is that with twinview set for the laptop screen and a crt monitor is also broken. Only the external monitor is used with clone set. However, the video playback is fine. So the video playback hang is exclusive to tv-out, but twinview seems to be a little broken all around.

Any help would be appreciated.
