Question tv-out geforce4mx bw

When I set up my graphics card to output video to the tv-out (svideo) the picture shows up but without colors!

When booting up windows the colors are there and it looks great...

Anyone experienced that? Any suggestions?

I've been experimenting with different settings and my current XF86Config-4 setup looks like:

Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768,1024x768"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-B"

Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"

Thumbs up

That solved my problem. However, I don't understand why I should force COMPOSITE when I only got an SVIDEO output on my card. Well, I won't worry to much about that as long as it's working.

Well you're not forcing it, the connector on the card is just a connector, the actual card can do both composite and svideo but uses the same connecter to save space and money.
