Default GeForce 7800GT - latest drivers - TV Out Resolution issue

I used to use my television (NTSC) as a second monitor, had it running
last night actually, and in the NVIDIA control panel I could change both
my monitor's resolution and my television's resolution independently.
Now, however, my only choice is to have both of them act as a horizontal
span. How can I make it so that I can use "Dualview" like before and
switch the resolutions separately?

Default GeForce 7800GT - latest drivers - TV Out Resolution issue

I have a FX5600 and ran into this problem before too. The solution
that worked for me was to set the display properties to a single
monitor. Make sure that the TV is connected so it's detected on
boot-up. To know if it's working, you should see your motherboard
logo (windows logo) when the computer starts. This action is what
displays the dual-view option in Nvidia's control panel. I don't
know why the dual-view option disappears now and then but that's
how I was able to get it back.

Thanks Sam, that works. I just wish I didn't have to reboot anytime I
want to re-enable Dualview.

Glad to hear it worked. I know what you mean, I hate rebooting too,
it's annoying. At least now we know it's a software issue and not
hardware since we both have different cards. When I get a chance,
I'm going to let Nvidia know about the problem and hopefully it'll
get fixed in the near future.

Mhmm. It doesn't happen with two actual monitors.

With two monitors, you can change the settings on the fly without
losing the dual-view option?

Yeah, I use DualView and two monitors fulltime, occasionally add a
third. All mine are on DVI, but that doesn't make a difference to the
DualView. What does make a negative difference (IMO) is coming out of
SLI everything has to be redone, even when saving/loading profile. And,
the driver still requires a reboot going into and coming out of SLI.
Crap. But you can change all the other display settings on the fly
without rebooting.

Gigabyte GA K8N SLI

2 7800GTX 256 meg SLI

Actually I'm not sure. I haven't tried to disconnect the 2nd monitor
while leaving the computer on and replugging it.
