It appears that the component output breakout cable still uses the  
tvencoder chip..

I was able to avoid tearing finally (!) by disabling the composite  
extension.

Section "Extensions"
     Option         "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

I then got pixel perfect component pal output without overscan. But  
now i'm left with.. judder !!!

Watching live sports i get judder, it almost looks like it's dropping  
every even or odd field.. It might be that it's just that field parity  
is not observed, but it's a bit hard to make out.

Am beginning to think that nvidia hardware is useless for 50Hz pal  
output..
