[mythtv-users] TV-Out on an nVidia GeForce 7100GS

I am trying to get the TV-Out working from my nVidia GeForce 7100GS card via S-Video to my Samsung 46" DLP TV.  The current PC connection works fine, but I'd like to put the TV into AV1 mode to access my MythTV box.

Whenever I switch over to that input, my TV gives me a message on the screen saying "Check Cable Signal".  I know that the cable is connected on both ends correctly.  Would getting a DVI->Composite Video or DVI->HDMI cable work better?

Here's my xorg.conf file (minus the Keyboard/Mouse entries), if anyone thinks it'll help:
