mplayer plays tv but what about tv's s-video input?


is there a way to tell mplayer to lock on to s-video rather channels?
Code:
mplayer -vo x11 -tv on:driver=v4l:device=/dev/v4l/video0:norm=NTSC:width=640:height=480
is what im using and the output to console has a small snippet driscribing what i need....

Code:
Playing /TV
Cache fill:  0.00% (0 bytes)    TV detected! ;-)
Selected driver: v4l
 name: Video 4 Linux input
