Default FX5200 TV Out Problems

Hey all - I would appreciate your help on this one. I just bought an FX5200 to use as the video card for a media center PC. However, there is one thing I cannot figure out. Here is the situation:

I have a TV without S-Video so I am using an S-Video to Composite converter. This same cable and converter worked with a Geforce4 MX400 that was once connected to this computer. However, when I use the 5200, I see rolling horizontal bars on the TV and the image is in black and white.

I brought the computer over to a TV with S-Video, and the image was fine but still in black and white.

I then connected the computer to a standard VGA monitor, and it worked perfectly fine (colors and all, stable image). So I must ask, what is up?

This seems to be operating system independent since all of this happens before I get to the bootloader for either Windows or Linux (I have tried both to no avail).

I am hoping someone can help.

Thanks in advance,
