On this machine, I currently have a dual-monitor setup - nvidia TwinView, both via DVI. Tomorrow, I'll be connecting a TV up to the card additionally via HDMI.

Now, my goal is to a) keep the current setup and b) add to this a second X-session(on VT8), only running XBMC with my current main monitor and the TV in mirror-mode.

So, I'll probably need another xorg.conf and now I'm wondering, what's the best and easiest way to achieve this?

Is the card capable of driving more than two displays? Only Kepler cards are. If you have one of those, just use TwinView. Yeah, the name now doesn't fit anymore :), Kepler supports up to four displays. If you don't have Kepler, you can't do what you want anyway, you'll need a second graphic card. Then things get interesting. Basically, you do this, but with two cards BusID will be different in each section.

Meh, really, that sucks, it's just a GTS450 :/

I suppose I could connect my second monitor via HDMI and add a splitter to it, so that monitor 2 and TV could show the same?
