I'm using an S video connector to SCART to my TV. Ive set it to PAL 1 which it should be and its still black and white!
Here's one link: http://www.epanorama.net/circuits/svideo2cvideo.html
It does mention 7-pin s-video connector. Acer laptops (at least TM8003 and TM8104 I have) indeed have 7-pin connector.

From the top of my head, in ATI control panel, when you enable TV display, you can go to settings and play with them. It is possible that your answer is there. I remember that in earlier cards/drivers you could choose where your sync signal goes and that made a huge difference. But then again, I have not played with these settings for so long that I may be totally wrong.
