I have tried that both for nvidia and vesa. The strange thing is
that for vesa there is no difference but for nvidia I get no
picture at all.

>> Out from my HTPC I have SVIDEO which is sent to a SCART on the video.
>> The following options are set in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

>> Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
>> Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"
>> Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
>> Option "UseDisplayDevice" "TV"

>> When I use the vesa driver I get a colour output on the TV but with
>> the nvidia driver the output is much better but in black and white.

Best regards,
