[mythtv-users] NVidia 5200 independent output capability?

I just had to swap 5200s just yesterday because one of them didn't support
DVI and VGA at the same time.  It was listed as a FX5200LP on the board and
was a smaller, fanless version, so I think the DVI and VGA ports were
shared.  Curiously this other 'fullsize' 5200 FX has to be forced into
acknowledging the existence of a device on the DVI connector (even if it was
the only display), and connecting two devices at once seems to mess up the
EDID info so I had to force that too. Twinview works nicely because you can
get full OpenGL on both displays and pretty good video output on both
(although I believe the second monitor has to use another overlay method).
 I believe there are some other caveats if you decide to set things up with
seperate X screens spelled out in the nvidia driver readme.
