3 Monitors with a Nvidia GeForce GTX460

So, from what I have read I should be able to do this, but maybe I was mistaken.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX460 has three video outputs, two DVI and one mini HDMI. I know that you cannot run three separate monitors, but I was hoping to run two monitors, with my tv as a clone of the second monitor. I figured I'd use the DVI outs for the monitors and the HDMI out as the TV.

When I go into my display settings, I see all three monitors. The option to duplicate monitors 1&3 is available, but when I click to apply, it says ""Unable to save display settings".

Any ideas? I know I could ply around with a splitter cable, but if I could get this to work, I'd be happiest.

EDIT- and I do have it working now with a VGA splitter, but the quality goes down and I'd rather have the high quality going to my tv...

    VGA is not able to output high definition for a Hi-Def TV monitor. Try to use a splitter, if possible, that uses Dual Link DVI or HDMI.

    I've always heard that VGA can transmit 1080p just fine. Maybe not some of the digital features of a blueray disc, but 1080p yes.
