Borked iBook G4 adapter...

So Wallstreet bought a video adapter for his iBook to show the output on a TV screen. He has a 600, and the adapter is the one for the newer iBooks (like the G4). So it didn't work, and he gave it to me to try with my G4 iBook. If I plug it into my 'book, the screen flashes like there's a new monitor, but there is no output. I've tried it on multiple TVs (of the JVC and Sharp variety) with both S-Video and composite out. I've plugged it in while the iBook was on, off, restarting, and vice versa. It just doesn't work.

Any ideas on what's going on???

You probably have to go to the Display control panel and change the resolution to '800x600 (NTSC)' or something along those lines.
