First of all, this is not confurable after Xorg has started, AFAIK.
Secondly, when Xorg does autodetect the S-Video connection, it loads the
screen on both the LCD and S-Video interface which my video card does
not like very well. Linux has the exact same issue, the only solution
was to make sure the s-video connection was unplugged during Xorg
startup and plug it in afterwards. Then use atitvout to switch over to
the s-video and shut the lcd signal off. If Xorg can do this after it's
started then I might try that.
