View Full Version : [all variants] Dual screen with xvidtune and xrandr

November 12th, 2009, 12:28 AM

I have created a homemade VGA -> Scart cabel so my TV works like the second screen. I need to change some timeings to be able to get a clear picture on the TV and found xvidtune. The problem is that xvidtune can only display the main screen and not the second screen.

I set "export DISPLAY=:0.0 then the mainscreen will be displayed in xvidtune but if i change to "export DISPLAY=:0.1" or ":1.0" it can't find the display.

I can use xrandr to add new modes but that will take forever.

Someone got any ideas?
