VGA to S-Video Cable TV Settings

I am using a VGA to S-VIDEO cable. What should my settings be so that it will display properly on my TV?

If your using a scan converter type (I hope) then you should not have to do anything. Hooking your VGA output directly to NTSC is not recommended.

Read the instructions that came with the converter or cable... It will tell you what type of settings, (if any) need to be done on the computer side.
