I dunno if this helps at all but, my fx 5200/ pvr 150/Directv/svideo
out set up works well.
I use Knoppmyth 5R27 and a brand new TV with an svideo connection.
Might want to take a closer look at the cables, perhaps a modulator is
called for rather than will the svideo to composite cable.
I use the nvidia driver -- which one I'm not sure. I can check when I
get to that computer if you like.
