nvidia 9400m tv out

I have an integrated 9400m video card that has HDMI, DVI, and VGA out.  I am looking to get either composite or svideo.  I have a VGA to svideo & composite adaptor.  It doesn't actually do any converting, it relies on the computer to send out the correct signal to the vga port.

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and have the video out working fine for normal VGA out as well as DVI.  I can't find any documentation to say if the 9400m supports tv out, and if it does, how to enable it or how to force it on.  Currently, when I have the adaptor connected, the nvidia settings manager claims it is a CRT monitor and I get a black screen on my TV.

Thanks for your help.

The video card itself has to support sending composite video over unused pins on the VGA connector; otherwise, you need a converter like http://sewelldirect.com/pc-to-tv.asp.

I finally figured out that the card does not support TV out.  I ended up getting a $20 VGA to Svideo adaptor off Amazon.
