Why are you using two conflicting TVOutFormat options?  Why are you
using two conflicting ConnectedMonitor options (when you really
shoulnd't be using any)?

Is your TV capable of doing 1024x768 ?  That definitely won't work
with Composite out.

Also, 1.0-9755 is no longer supported.  You should upgrade to 100.14.11.
