It should be a rock-standard S-Video connection, according to the
information on MSI's site.  Anyway, it's not that difficult to set up for
TV-only output.  You use option lines like these in the "Device" section:

    Option      "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
    Option      "UseDisplayDevice" "TV"
    Option      "TVStandard" "PAL-I"

You might want to read the "Configuring TV Output" chapter of the NVidia
driver documentation.  It's actually pretty good.
