I was wondering if the dual screen issues with nvidia cards and dual screening. I have a 9800M GT gpu, and my second display is a 720p lcd 17" tv with a max res of 1920x1080@60Hz.

For some reason i can never get the screen to show up/work on *buntu. No matter what i try. Xorg doesn't fix it no matter what i've tried and i was wondering if the community's found a fix for it. I also am using an HDMI cable to connect them.

uhm... well nothing shows up. Either "no input" or if i do magically get it to work. I like to have it to the left of my main display since well that's how it's setup on my desktop. My mouse'll get stuck there and i can't move it away from it. I'll go hop back on ubuntu right now and reinstate dual screen then get back on here and post my results once more.
