Oddly enough there is just a blank where the S-Video out should be.  I
am using component to go to the home theater amp right now so I thought
I would play with the coax until I get things working.  I am trying not
to disrupt cable tv for my wife right now until I get myth going.  I did
actually try the component this weekend and had no luck with that
either, but admittedly did not try long.
