It should be a rock-standard S-Video connection, according to the
information on MSI's site. Anyway, it's not that difficult to set up for
TV-only output. You use option lines like these in the "Device" section:
Option "TVOutFormat" "SVIDEO"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "TV"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-I"
You might want to read the "Configuring TV Output" chapter of the NVidia
driver documentation. It's actually pretty good.
