Hi, I'm new here so there's a big fat chance I'm posting in the wrong section. If that's the case I'm sorry.

A week ago I had a Sapphire HD 3850 in my old PC. Then it broke and I bought an Asus 3850 as replacement. It came with no accessories nor cables and since I use my PC to watch movies on my old CRT TV too I tried to use my Sapphire S-video to composite adapter with it (it's an 8-pin mini-DIN). The signal gets displayed in black and white but the TV gets recognized. I bought a 7-pin mini-DIN to composite then. The card doesn't detect my TV and doesn't output to it. I tried asking Asus and they didn't know. I tried downloading the manual from their site and it's not available. I'm quickly running out of options. Can anybody please help me?
