[mythtv-users] Weird video out problem

I recently upgraded the video card in my frontend from a TNT2 to a GF4MX. I
had been using a cheap scan converter to provide an NTSC signal, but since
the new card has TV out, I was hoping to get rid of the scan converter.
When I first plugged in the video card, and hooked it up to my tv, I got
signal right away. But now, after a motherboard upgrade that was to go along
with the video card, My tv-out signal is a mess.
For normal console stuff, I get a a bunch of diagonal white lines that are
supposed to be the text. When I go in to the BIOS screens, I can see nearly
everything, but the screen is offset nearly 50 percent horizontally. X
simply crashes with a signal 11 on startup.
Here is my attempted cabling:
Video card svideo port ------- svideo to composite converter ---- 4 in 1
composite selector box --- VCR --- TV.
Yes, I know its a mess, but my TV only takes RF input, and my VCR only has one
set of composite inputs.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can get this working?
