ATI Radeon 7200 32MB PCI TV-Out Issues---need help/info please...

    I bought the above card. I am running an Nvidia 16MB TNT2 in my AGP
    slot for my main monitor and got the ATI PCI for my 2ndary monitor and
    for the TV-Out ability.

    After a few angry hours of trying to locate/install the drivers I got
    it working and it works great for the 2nd monitor.

    Problems lie in outputting to the TV. I can't seem to configure the
    full screen image to fit to the TV screen. If I bring the resoluton
    too low, the images is clipped. If I set it too high, it is set off
    smaller, to the upper left corner and off the edge of the screen.
    Adjusting the 'centering' and dimensions in the ATI control panel
    won't go far enough to bring the image within the tv screen
    dimensions.

    Am I just not understanding how to configure this OR have I just
    bought a completely useless card, considering the main appealing
    feature was to be able to watch DVDs and play PC games on the TV.

    Should I make the ATI the Primary card/monitor? (does that matter?)

    I'm running W98se, 900mhzAMD.
    The connection is s-video out to rca/line adaptor to vcr line in.( if
    that matters)

    Did I mention ATI's website has a really lame online support/customer
    service system?

    Did I mention I don't really know what I'm doing?

    Any info/advice is greatly appreciated!!!!!!
    Thanks
