xserver question

I've got a question concerning xorg-xserver and twinview mode (crt and
tv) on an nvidia gforce 6200.

Up to now I have the following configuration:


Section "Screen"

    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Device         "NVIDIA Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 TurboCache]"
    Monitor        "ECOMO 750"
    DefaultDepth    24

    Option          "TwinView"
    Option          "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
    Option          "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
    Option          "HorizSync" "CRT-0: 30-121; TV-0: 30-50"
    Option          "VertRefresh" "CRT-0: 50-160; TV-0: 60"
    Option          "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
    Option          "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
    Option          "MetaModes" "CRT-0: 1600x1200, TV-0: 800x600; CRT-0:
1280x1024, TV-0: 800x600;"
    Option          "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
    Option          "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"

    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"

In order to play a video on the tv set I now have to call mplayer in the
following way:

mplayer -xineramascreen 0 -stop-xscreensaver -ontop -geometry 1600:0 \
  -noborder -autosync 1 -x 790 -y 570 "$1"

Works ok. But I want to know if the following situation is possible:

I want to start a separate xserver for the TV set only when I need it
(and of course to be able to switch it off accordingly). The important
thing is that this xserver _may not_ influence my xserver for the crt.

Any help is highly appreciated.
