Re: Can run SVIDEO TVOutFormat, can't run COMPONENT
Have you tried with only ONE output cable connected? The load on the S-Video may be confusing the driver's detection logic. I've had this type of issue when my S-Video and component cables were both connected at the same time.
You might try the "ConnectedMonitor" "TV" setting in xorg.conf or the option "UseDisplayDevice" "TV"
Also make sure you use the same capitalization for the options and the values as Nvidia lists in the README.
