Make sure your output resolution is 800x600 or lower, and that the format matches your TV (NTSC or PAL).

Do you know if your tv is capable of displaying an 800x600 image?  Most will do 640x480, but higher than that can be problematic.  Also, make try turning the tv on first before turning on the pc and see if that changes anything.

See if changing the refresh rate to a multiple of the format helps.  NTSC is 29.97fps, so 60Hz might work, and PAL is 25fps, so 75Hz might work for that.

Do you have a manual for the TV that describes what kind of input it will take?  How old is this TV?

At 8yrs old, you may be experiencing a problem with the circuitry on the inputs.  A flickering is an indication of marginal or failing performance, and the fact that the card works on a different video scope points to the tv as the point of failure.  TVs are not expected to run trouble-free for many years, especially if they are used a lot.
