Is it the TV?

I use the S-Video TV out on my Kyro 64 and just recently my borrowed AIW Radeon 7500. Anyway, the picture on my Apex 24" tv looks a little like a bottle. Most of the picture is fine until maybe a quarter from the top, where it seems like the picture is getting squeezed, so that the image is closer together and there is a blank space on the sides where the image should be. Now I thought this was due to the Kyro card not being such a good tv out card, but since the 7500 also has this problem, I think it is something else. So, do you think it is the tv? Or is it something else that I can fix that doesn't require a new tv?


Thanks

Well it's not a problem of position, it's just the picture seems to be put in a bottle at the top. And when I drag something in that area, like a folder or something, it get's a little wider. It's only missing like an 3cm on both sides, and only at the top. Funny thing is when I play a game it goes away and the picture takes up the whole screen. I guess it's just the TV
