i had the same problem when i moved from vga out to s-video out.
check your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file. i bet when you did the apt-get
it overwrote the config file that you had previously. you need to
make sure that 'tv' is specified in the 'Monitor' section of the
config file. i don't remember the settings off the top of my head.
if you don't see tv listed in the Monitor section let me know and i'll
send you my XF86Config-4 file and you can tweak from there. or if you
post your hardware configuration i'm sure someone else with a very
similar setup will send you their XF86Config-4 file.
