TV_OUT works in grub, but fails at Ubuntu Splash screen

Hey all,
I have a laptop with svid out (i855) and have managed to press fn f5 at the grub screen. This will bring bring up grub on my TV, perfectly clear. The screen will stay clear until I select my boot option (Ubuntu 6.10). As soon as the Ubuntu splash screen starts, I can see the colors, however it is very distorted(it is not possible to make out what is on the screen, just the colors on the screen). when I ctrl+alt+f2 so i can shutdown, the screen becomes clear again. I am thinking this may be a problem with the resolution as the problem only really starts when the Ubuntu graphical system takes over. Any suggestions on a fix, or has anyone succefully used the svid out with this card?

No expreience with that card. Just some info. Most TVs can only handle a little under 800x600. You could try running in frame buffer mode at 800x600.
