I had this problem when I used the NTSC mode in the Xorg.conf. Try the
HD480i mode. This fixed it for me.

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.
