I just rebuilt my system per Jarod's instructions
(http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/fcmyth.php) and am having a problem with
TV-out from my nVidia GeForce4 MX 440 video card.  I installed the
1.0-4363 drivers using Axel's Fedora kernel modules.  Per the
instructions, I added the following Device section to the nVidia
XF86Config file:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "Chaintech"
        BoardName   "nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440"
        Option      "RenderAccel" "1"
        Option      "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
        Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
        Option      "TVOverScan" "0.7"
        Option      "NvAGP" "1"

When I booted, output was on both the monitor (Gateway EV700) and
television (27" JVC) until X started, at which time the television
flickered and went black.  The reverse occurs when I insert the
following line:

        Option        "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"

Specifically, I get output on the TV but not on the monitor.

I saw other discussions in this forum about TV-out and nVidia but had
trouble sorting through contradictory information, such as whether it
is necessary to define Screen and Monitor settings for my TV, and
fancy hacks that made it possible to have different content on the two
screens.  I'm just looking for a simple clone of the monitor on the
TV.  Could someone with a similar setup send me their XF86Config file?
 Alternately, I've attached mine if anyone has suggestions.

- kernel#2.4.22-1.2179.nptl_47.rhfc1.at
- PVR-350 (but I'm not using its TV-out)
- nVidia GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x
- Intel P4 1.5 GHz
