I'm trying to connect my htpc to a standard def television.

I'm using an Nvidia 7900GT with an S-video output, connected to the S-video input on the TV.

When I boot the computer I can see the POST screen and the Windows XP splash screen, but then it goes all crazy, with just horizontal lines everywhere. I tried connecting a monitor at the same time. I can see both the tv and monitor in my video card settings. If I set it to extend the desktop from the monitor to the tv, I can see it fine. This works whether I extend vertically or horizontally. However, when I try to clone the desktop, or if I set the TV as primary monitor, I get the fuzzy lines again.

If I boot into Safe mode or VGA mode, it also displays windows fine.

It seems to be a driver setting, but I have configured the video settings to NTSC and s-video.
