Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I found a guide for this.
I think you should do as follows, but I cannot test.
Install the nvidia driver (preferably using envy) if you have not done so already.
Edit your xorg.conf
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf xorg.bak
to back it up
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
to edit it
Change ' Section "Device" ' and add a new one like this
Code: Select all
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce FX 5200"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
    Screen          0
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Videocard1"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce FX 5200"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
    Screen          1
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
EndSection

Of course you use the "BoardName" of your card
AS far as I know India uses PAL-B.
This should do it.
I think something like this should be possible to achieve without editing a file. It's not hard to do but it's an "ugly" solution
