Default Re: TVOutStandard set to composite does not work under 1.0.9626

I also get the same symptoms as described in this thread with a brand-new GeForce 6200 GPU with latest unified driver 100.14.11 i.e.

a) no picture at all with TVOutFormat "COMPOSITE"
b) Black and White on a TV connected to TV-OUT via Svideo->Composite convertor lead incl with kit

Interestingly,
* DO get colour initially with boot/splash screens - colour ONLY disappears when X starts - hmmm ? this indicates that card/hardware must be OK to see colour at all, surely ?

* DO get colour on TV-OUT port if connect using a SVideo lead to TV which does SVideo (s'pose I could avoid by just getting myself a more modern TV, yeah , yeah ...)

* lead is OK as it produces colour if use it between my ole VCR and TV

* If set TVOUTFormat to COMPOSITE as the README suggests, get no picture at all; if set to AUTOFORMAT -or- SVIDEO get B&W

I conclude from this that it can't be hardware but would seem to be the Nvidia driver ( I am running latest 100.14.11 but also is reproducable with 1.0.9639) in combination with X-server.

Anyone else seeing these symptoms with latest driver ?

I can confirm the exact same issue as you. I am running a GeForce 6200 on the latest Gentoo with the latest nVidia drivers. I am using an adapter from s-video to composite. Both the default VESA and xorg's nv driver gives me full colour on the tv-out.

The nVidia drivers give me black and white if I set to S-VIDEO and blank screen when set to composite. Rather interesting, I can't see if this was resolved on the forums

Add me to the list of people with the same symptoms. I'm using KnoppMyth R5F1 distribution.
