Black and White S-VIDEO output from GeForce FX5200 on Debian

I have upgraded from a GF4 MX4000 to a GF FX5200. I use my PC to watch a lot of movies on my TV using S-VIDEO. It took loads of messing about but eventually I got my old card to output to my TV and it worked great. Hoever I can only get my FX5200 to output to my TV in black and white.

As I understand it I should just have to recompile my nvidia driver and my old xorg.conf should work fine. But to get a picture on the TV with my old card I had to use the Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE" setting, but with the new card I can only get a picture useing the Option "TVOutFormat" "S-VIDEO" setting, but the output is black and white.

I have tried adjusting the TVStandard settings but none of them give me colour.

Can anyone help?
