Under system settings - Display and Monitor module. I have tried 3 different video cards with s-video outputs and the only settings available for the TV-1 output are 50hz or auto. Either way the picture is garbled (unsinked). Why can't I get 60hz NTSC video from the s-video output of my video card? Is this a KDE problem? I am running Suse on one machine and Fedora on another, both with KDE. Same results.

The chips which output S-Video are designed around the 29.97Hz interlaced standard for NTSC. You want better, ATSC is the way to go.
