Are you using a dual-headed output mode, or are you just booting 
your machine with no monitor, with just the TV-out connected?

I've been wanting to setup dual-headed with TV-out, but I haven't found
all the info in one place.  Some mentions to nvtv (which I've played
with a bit) and some mentions of creating new entries in the XF86Config
file to create special output modes for TV-out, but I'm not sure if
that was the "old way" and "nvtv" is the "new way" or if I need to 
set things up using both the configs and the utility.

I've got a couple machines that could be candidates for this.  One
with a GeForce2MX and the other a GeForce4 (both are dual-headed).
