7900gs To 8500gt?

  1. I have just updated my graphics card from a nvidia 7900gs 256 to a galaxy 8500gt 512. With the 7900gs I was able to do a dual view setup using the s-video output letting me have a movie on the tv whilst still surfing the net. Since the update and downloading ntune 5 the option for dual view has gone I now only have the clone, horizontal view, vertical view and continuos view options left. I have an old vga screen running at 1600 x 1200 60hz. Can anyone explain how to get the dual view option back?
    I know this is probably a really dense question so please don't take the piss too badly.

    I will try to put this "gently", I believe down-graded would better describe your situation as opposed to up-dated. As a comparison:
    7900GS = 8600GTS (maybe)
    7600GT = 8600GT
    8500GT = 7300GT (maybe)

    See this chart, click on it and compare for yourself
