Default Black and white output on TV in Linux

There's probably other posts about this, but a simple search didn't render any.

I have this in my xorg.conf:
Under Section "Screen"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-G" # I've tried them all, but it should be PAL-G/B for Norway
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO" # I use regular svideo cable in both ends.

Even with these set, I get black&white output. It works with the opensource nv driver, but it doesn't support GLX which I need.

Can anybody help me? Any advice what I may try next?
