I have the 5200 as well and display the same output on the monitor and TV.
The phrase you need to look for is "twinview".  I found the information in 
the nvidia readme.

Adding these lines in the device section of xorg should do it.

# for twinview
        Option      "Twinview"
        Option      "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
        Option      "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
