did you go into your display setting on your computer and tell it that there is an s-video cable hooked up?

Open your graphic properties in your control panel with your S-video hooked up to the television, then see exactly what your displaying out through the s-video.

You ccan set your resolution on the 'second' monitor(television) correctly and/or go into your television settings and check to see if your t.v s-video connection is set up correctly(you have it). but aside from that, ,there shouldn't be any problems after you fine adjust to your television.
