Default S-Video Display Has Keystone

I am running release 8756 for Linux x86-64 on Fedora Core 4. The system has an FX-5200 card installed. I have my Toshiba 55" Projection TV (pre-HDTV) connected via S-Video.

The display does not fill the TV screen and it has a keystone-like effect - that is, the top is narrower than the bottom.

My xorg.conf file contains the following in the Device section:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "unknown"
BoardName "GeForce FX 5200"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"

I have used the nvidia-settings utility to increase the amount of overscan. This fills the screen. But the picture is slighly distorted and text on the bottom of the screen gets clipped on both sides.

I have also tried the same setup tied to a conventional 27" TV with the same results.

I can't find any references to others with the same problem, so I must have screwed something up...

How do I eliminate the keystone effect?
