[mythtv-users] PVR-350 and TV Out - can't get it working

My money is on the xorg.conf file, I'm not an X user so am lost in this
area.  I'll look around to see if I can find a sample that might get me
sorted out.

When rebooting nothing shows on the TV screen (I'm using s-video to the TV).
There is a slight flicker on the TV monitor so I know there's a connection,
but nothing but black on the screen.

Here is my xorg.conf
# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "i810"
        # TV Out Setup

        Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
