Some TVs don't support svideo via scart or require a specific scart socket to 
be used or even a specific channel to be used.

On my Phillips Widescreen TV I have to use the second scart socket and use the 
special SVHS channel. The Ext2 channel shows the image but in black and 

I don't use a PVR350 but my Nvidia TV out also requires a specific command in 
the config to output svideo as opposed to composite.
