Radeon 8500 LE "stuck" in Analog mode - I added CCC for TV-out and can't get into Digital mode anymo

    Previously I had only the display drivers loaded, and could hit the
    monitor's Digital/Analog toggle button to switch between modes.

    I always wanted to try the TV-out S-Video port, so I installed the
    latest Catalyst v6,5, connected the Radeon card to my TV, and left
    both VGA and DVI-I cables connected to my monitor. Now, whenever I
    hit the Digital/Analog toggle button the screen briefly says "Digital"
    for about 2 seconds, but then the word disappears and "Analog" appears
    for 2 seconds and then it goes back to showing the desktop. In analog
    mode. It simply will no longer go into Digital mode anymore.

    I have 2 profiles - one with both the Monitor and the TV displays on -
    and one with just the Monitor on and the TV off. I read that the
    monitor will be stuck in analog mode when using the TV-out, but that
    it should be fine when I select the mode that uses the monitor only.
    But in both cases, the monitor will not go to digital mode.

    The monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 213T and looks much better in
    Digital mode. Also, for some reason certain videos are all black in
    analog mode - so I really need Digital mode.

    Any help on this? TIA
