Everybody tells me to post a guide for the tv-nvidia settings. It's simple you only need to modify the xorg.conf like that:

1) Create a new setcion called "Monitor" and puts your monitor specs, it's look like that:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "TV0"
VendorName "TV Vendor"
ModelName "Samsung Tantus"
DisplaySize 465 350
HorizSync 30.0 - 50.0
VertRefresh 60.0 - 60.0
Option "dpms"

2) Modify the device section, adding your monitor preferences for the twinview:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX (generic)"
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,NULL;NULL,640x480"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"

3) Create a new user (only for watch tv), and set the display resolution to 640x480
4) Log in as the new user, and enjoy

Note: xorg.conf locate at /etx/X11/xorg.conf , check your tv specs at the manual.

It's works fine on me!!
