TV out garbled with linux > 3.2 (RV516)

With anything more recent an linux 3.16 my S-video TV output looks garbled. Depending on the resolution the black colors are either green-tinted with horizontal stripes, or magenta.
This is with "tv standard" set to ntsc. If I set it to pal the colors look about right but the screen is scrolling.
My xf86-video-ati package version is 7.9
The only way I can get this card working correctly is either by using the 3.16 kernel or using the uvesafb driver. With the 3.16 kernel it works ok but the blacks are a little purple-ish and I have other issues with that kernel.
With the uvesafb driver the colors look perfect and it performs ok for my needs but it underscans so there is a black border around the picture.
