Maybe this is more common in Europe.  My (also not smart) TV has a
SCART connector for the AV input.  I have to toggle between S-Video
and Composite using the remote.

I've seen the ribs on the computer case betwen the PCI slots foul
connector sockets so the plugs are hard to push all the way in. Pretty
easy to spot that though.

That's OK - sorry I struck out.

Just looking again at your xorg.conf, the TVStandard parameter should
definitely be an NTSC option, rather than HDM480i; but you say you've
already tried that.

Hopefully someone else can help you out.
