I have the 5200 as well and display the same output on the monitor and TV.
The phrase you need to look for is "twinview". I found the information in
the nvidia readme.
Adding these lines in the device section of xorg should do it.
# for twinview
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT,TV"
