That wiki page isn't where I learned this stuff.  But, I just checked that page out and I've tried what that page discusses.

I've gone back and tried to make my xorg.conf as simple as possible by modifying xorg.conf.failsafe and only adding the stuff that is necessary to get TV out over the component cable.  And, when I did that, as soon as I added "TVOutFormat" "COMPONENT", there was no picture again.  The simplified xorg.conf is attached.  They're both commented out now, but you can see where I've played with "COMPONENT" and "SVIDEO" as values for "TVOutFormat".

I'm wondering if there isn't some knowledge of a bug or something that needs to be worked around for some 6200 cards to get component TV out.
