I once had an NVidia chipset that didn't recognize SVideo very
reliably.  So ... sorry to have to ask obvious questions. :)

Did you try forcing SVIDEO out?
  Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

Did you logverbose and see what Xorg said? Eg:
  startx -- -logverbose 5

Did you try booting with only the TV connected (no VGA)?
