Default Black and White TV out Svideo HP Pavilion Ubuntu Linux: Possible fix

I have struggled with the SVideo TV out being black and white most of the time. Occasionally it would flicker back and forth. I have experimented with all sorts of settings-- and I may have found a combination that works.

My video chipset is Geforce Go 6150.

I put these entries in my xorg.conf file under the "Screen" section:


Option "TVStandard" "HD480i"
Option "TVOutFormat" "AUTOSELECT"

I am using driver version 195.36.03 on an amd64 processor.
I hope this helps others that are experiencing the same problem.

I believe the S video output is for component video out...

ie the TV signal uses 3 cables [ blue,red,green connectors ] instead of a single yellow connector cable...

I just wanted to follow up and add that even with a driver upgrade the above settings using the svideo output on my laptop have remained in color. Not even a flicker to black and white once.
