Default b/w TV-out with SVIDEO and various PAL-* modes

I'm trying to get TV-out working on my Leadtek WinFast A400 Ultra TDH (GF6800U).

I'm using SVIDEO, and I've tried various PAL modes. I always get black and white though.

Is there a way to find out which mode I should choose?

Edit: Using NVIDIA drivers 1.0.6111, XFree 4.3.0.1.

This is a normal problem when using SCART converters. The main issue is that (most) TVs are stupid and don't understand S-VIDEO when using SCART. You could modify your SCART-convertor to make it work though, but then it becomes composite again. You have to put a small capacitor between the pins of the lumiance and chromiance (color) signal to do this. Don't remember the capacitor value by head.
