Default Force composite

Hello,

I've just upgrade my computeur from an old Mandrake 9.2 OS to a gentoo system. The nvidia tv out worked fine; it was the 4496 driver version. I had to force the composite output throught the svideo connector to get color on my tv.

It doesn't work anymore. I can only get a black and white screen because I can only use SVIDEO format. If I force the composite output, I haven't got any image on my tv.

Here is my xorg.conf

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "X.org Configured"
