Help with SD library and TVout library

Hello all! Hopefully you all will help answer my question.

I am using the TVout library and the SD library. What I am trying to do is render a text document on the SD card on a screen. The Arduino can easily write to the card, but can't read it. When I write "testing 1, 2, 3." to the SD card, the screen displays "etn ,2 ." Then is goes crazy and displays a bunch of dots. At first I thought it was a RAM problem, but when I reduced the amount of space used by TVout, the message was still the same. I don't know if I should post it here, so if anyone has suggestions, I am open.
