Default TV-output from 7600GT is grey

Upgraded my hardware full linux box from an AGP system with GF6800 to a new one with PCI-E GigaByte 7600GT.

Previously TV-out worked in colour under Linux. With new card I get grey tv-out. Setting TVOutputFormat SVIDEO/SCART didnt help, neithe setting PAL or NTSC.

The card came with an output splitter cable and interface so I have an SVIDEO output and 3 component outputs.

Manual says that the card can use the 3rd component output as AV output from the card.

What does it mean? Can I force nvidia driver to put the picutre onto that third component output?

It seems I am stuck with grey otherwise... any ideas about this?

Or should I buy a better SVIDEO->RCA converter cable and try to use SVIDEO like before? (Although previously this cable worked well ... okay it came with the previous video card but shouldnt it work with the new splitter before it?)

I get the same thing under ubuntu with xgl on a PCIE 6200TC. Grey scale with SVIDEO and a blue scale with COMPONENT

Follow up. On my setup using HD480i instead of NTSC-M fixed my issue

Option "TVStandard" "HD480i"
# Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"

Okay.

Officials, any idea about how to activate the Audio/Video output on component output's third line in Nvidia driver?

I'm pretty sure when it says third it means that there are 3 outputs on you card {DVI, VGA, TV-OUT breakout port}. The funny s-video/component connector being the 3rd output. The card and driver are oblivious to which input port you use on you TV.

Merry Christmas,

And I am pretty sure that its not.

The output splitter has an SVIDEO and 3 component output. Marks are on the surface and on the third component output there is an AV sign showing that it can work in another mode. Also the manuals for Windows says I can use it.

Now the question remains, how can I set it to work under Linux with nvidia driver.

Also there is only one output on the card itself. I have to use a splitter cable to use it...

Anyone using GigaByte GF 7600GT with that splitter and analogue TV-out? Ideas?

Default Re: TV-output from 7600GT is grey

Solved it by this little HW tweaking (my tv doesnt support S-Video, only composite and SCART, neither worked by default. S-V to scart helped with the hw modding):
