Make sure that your TV is set to expect SVideo - on mine I have to  
specifically go to the AV settings menu and toggle AV2 between SVideo and  

Also make sure that your TV can _handle_ SVideo - having a SCART connector  
is no guarantee.

This is all assuming that your converter doesn't do a SVideo->Compisite  
for you, of course. =)
