You can use xrandr to do the switch, or grandr (with GUI and can be
bound to hot-key), or statically setting in xorg.conf.

Subject: dell with intel 945 GM tv out

Hi all,
  I have a Dell Inspiron 640m, with an Intel 945GM graphic card. If I
start my x session with the svideo cable plugged in, my desktop shows
both in my notebook LCD and my tv. But I can't get it to switch (like I
can in Windows) to be ONLY in the tv, or ONLY in the notebook LCD. It's
stuck there, showing the same thing in both. How can I switch it? The
keyboard combination to do so doesn't work either. 
  Thanks in advance,

    Luis Pablo
