Connecting 6800 GT to a TV

Hi!

I have a Xfx geforce 6800 GT with a standard S-video output, my TV is a
Toshiba as featured on this site:
http://www.homecinemachoice.com/reviews/hccreviews/Televisions/Toshiba/Toshiba28W93B.php?action=setwidth&NewSiteWidth=

I have managed to connect it successfully using this kit:
http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/PCTOTV3.html?id=ZaYGtk9d

however I get a really crappy picture, it is very fuzzy and blurry. I know
that there are around a dozen different TV types to choose from under the
nvidia options and they give varying results however one of the PAL options
gives black and white with a perfect picture (aside from it being black &
white).

Now I was told that my TV would have to have an S-video compatible scart
socket for it to work in colour which as this picture shows,
http://www.homecinemachoice.com/reviews/hccreviews/Televisions/Toshiba/Toshiba28W93B_inputs.jpg
it does.

The site I purchased the scart kit from also offers an adaptor for putting
the s-video through the composite connection which is this item :
http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/AD006.html is that what I need?

Don't fancy watching everything in B&W and don't fancy getting a headache
from the crappy picture in other modes!

Just for ref it is a PAL Tv in the Uk & the max res I could put it in for
B&W was 1024x768 but res wise it was great...

Any suggestions?!

Looking at the TV blurb, you shouldn't need the adaptor, providing you're plugged in to the correct SCART socket on the TV (only one
of them is S-Video compatible).
