Default Connecting computer to TV

I bought an svideo to rca cable and when i plug it in my computer it doesnt detect that its there. I tried someone elses and theres works but the quality is low so i want to use mine. Someone said to force it to detect the tv, but i didnt have anything like that. I found catalyst for my ati video card which will detect it, but i have a notebook and catalyst isnt compatable with my radeon mobility 9000 card, is there any other software that will force tv detection or do i have to wait untill ati makes a newer version of catalyst that works with my card.

You have to switch the video mode to TV out. It defaults to the monitor.
