How do I enable TV Out?

Installation: Redhat 8 on P3 w/MSI GeForce4 MX460 VTP

I clean installed Redhat 8 with a CRT. Everything worked fine.

I upgraded to Nvidia Linux Drivers Version: 1.0-3123 and everything works fine.

I attempt to use TVOUT and I get garbled crap on the TV.

Here is my XF86Config file:

# File generated by anaconda.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "SendCoreEvents"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

FontPath "unix/:7100"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and

Resolved Fixed (by swapping video cards)
I replaced the MSI GeForce4 MX460 with a LeadTek WinFast A250 TD VIVO (GeForce4 Ti4200) and restarted my system. Everything just worked.
