TSVN can only show diffs for text files natively. All other formats
require an external tool to show you the diffs. From your description,
it looks like powershell files are non-text files that accidentally
get interpreted as text files.

Set the svn mime type property for these files to a non-text mime type
and configure an external diff viewer for powershell files (if that is
available) through the TSVN->Settings->External Programs dialog.
