In theory you don't need to set anything special in xorg.conf to get a clone TV output. But if your machine is a desktop with external monitor connected, and a non-existing LVDS wrongly detected (because it's mobile chipset), that may cause problem, and in that case, you'll need to explicitly "ignore" LVDS in xorg.conf (like http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18687#c19), or the latest driver may already fix this issue.

It will be useful if you post xrandr output to confirm the issue.

Subject: S-video with Intel Graphics Card

I am trying to clone my desktop to a television using an S-video cable. I'm am using an 82852/855GM Intel graphics card. I have tried editing my xorg.conf several times and it has never worked. The best I can get from my television is a flicker, and editing my xorg.conf usually messes up my computer monitor as well. My goal is to at least get some kind of picture on the TV screen. I wouldn't really mind if it was black and white or didn't use the whole screen, so long as it works. Can I get some help with this please?
