You didn't mention the PC video resolution. PC to TV Video Box supports resolution up to 1024 x 768 at 60 Hz.

Well you seemed to have narrowed the problem down to the TV s-video input assuming you have tried the box on another TV this session. Since the Kworld device has a composite video output (the yellow connector) I'd try hooking that up to an input on the TV that you know will work fine with some other composite device, like a VCR, for example. Also I noticed there are some dip switches to set the format on the box. It could be the got inadvertently got set to a PAL format or some other output format. Beyond that, I would need to be able to touch and feel the thing.
