Sounds like your TV doesn't support an S-video signal. Not all of them do,
and sometimes the TV will only support an S-video signal on one of the SCART
sockets. For example my TV has 4 SCART sockets, but only SCART 2 supports
s-video. If I plug the s-video->scart cable into any of the other SCART
sockets on the TV then I get a monochrome picture.

Check the specs for your TV.
