Default TV-OUT in black and white

I have the following configuration : Dell Laptitude D800 with Debian Sarge (2.6.6 kernel with LInix NVidia Driver 5336).
I would like to have a dual display (in my LCD and my tv TV to watch some Movie). I have the following XF86Config :
Section "Device"
Identifier "NVidia"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "TwinView"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768;"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-N"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
HorizSync 31.5 - 100.0
VertRefresh 30.0 - 90.0
Option "DPMS"
DisplaySize 330 210
# 1024x768 @ 60 Hz, 48.4 kHz hsync
Modeline "1024x768" 65 1024 1032 1176 1344 768 771 777 806 -hsync -vsync
# 1920x1200 @ 70Hz, 87.50 KHz hsync
Modeline "1920x1200" 230 1920 1936 2096 2528 1200 1201 1204 1250 +HSync +VSync

In this configuration, i have the good image in the TV but unfortunately in black and white. I have tested different configurations by changing "TVStandard" and "TVOutFormat", but nothing resolve the problem.
Have you got an idea ?
Thank you in advance.

PS : With Windows XP that works perfectly, so i think it is not a hardawre problem.

I was getting black and white on the TV using s-video input. Happening sometimes with the dvd player. Changing a setting on the TV to expect NTSC fixed it (I'm I a PAL country). But yours works in Windows so this is just a guess.
