Default s-video 5700XT

I have a Gigabyte 5700XT which has a D type, an S video and a DVI connector.
I tried to connect the S-video output to my TV using the s - video cable. However i could not see anything on the TV.

Are the S-video and the DVI ports always active just as the D type port is. Or do i need to install some software which would activate the s-video port?

I have never done this before but I would recommend tuning the TV channel to find the S-video output from your graphics card.

But you might have to install extra software? Check the nVidia site.
