TV-out on ATi card giving rolling picture?


I have an ATi Radeon 9600 that i (finally) got the ATi drivers working under Mandriva 2006 so now i'm trying to get the tv-out on the card working using aticonfig, my problem is that regardless what tv standard (VIDEO, SCART, or YUV) or tv signal format (NTSC or PAL) it always shows a rolling, black and white picture on the NTSC tv. The TV is not auto-detected so i have to force it on. I'm using X.org 6.9 and have checked the xorg.conf file and all seems to be in order there, though i could have missed someting. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

Did you set the vertical sync to either 50 or 60 hertz. Also did you set saturation. I am using a nVidia card but I had to set saturation from 0 (black and white) to a value like 128 to get color.

You should not use X.org version 6.9 because it has a memory leak. I am using version 6.8 in Gentoo and the developers have hard masked 6.9 because of the memory leak problem.
