Same thing, it doesn't work. No picture at all. I take out the "TVOutFormat" "COMPONENT" line and I get black and white video on the television. This is the same thing S-Video does. So, I'm thinking you take out TVOutFormat, and you get S-Video.
This is the only interesting message I saw in Xorg.0.log. Not sure if the GLX module would prevent COMPONENT video from working:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
(EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.

Here's the link to Leadtek's description of my card:
Quote from it:
"Integrated HDTV encoder. Provides world-class HDTV-out functionality up to and including 1920x1080i resolutions."
I've just recently started seeing this phrase "breakout box". I think I do have one. It's a dongle thing that fits into the proprietary port on the back of the video card, and then on the other end of it you can plug in S-Video and component cables. It's not a box though, it's just a cable looking thing which splits the signal coming out of the video card into component and s-video cables. Is that what you mean when you say breakout box?
