    I have a Geforce 7300 GS and am trying to use the S-video out
    I have connected to TV and all seems fine until I play something with
    RealPlayer or Windows Media Player and then the actual video output
    from the application is just black on the TV screen - but OK on the

    Any ideas?

    Maybe it's an "overlay" problem. Try this if you're using XP.
    Open WMP. Click "Tools / Options / Performance / Advanced.
    Uncheck "Use overlays".
    Overlays also keep one from doing frame grabs. When you copy to clipboard
    you end up with black square.
    I've seen this setting NOT STICK in WMP.
    And... I don't see this setting using WMP in Vista. Looks like my Vista
    WMP11 does not use overlays.
    (& no advanced menu button)
