In your xorg.conf, set the TV output format to COMPOSITE. Even though
you are outputting on an S-Video port, your ultimate destination is
composite and you need to tell Nvidia that to pass the right color
information. Originally, I assumed that config option was to say which
*port* to output but it actually controls the format of the signal on
the s-video port.
