Last week the TV-Out support for the Radeon driver was merged into the open-source Radeon RandR-1.2 driver. This TV-out support should work with all ATI graphics cards supported by the open-source driver. In Alex Deucher's list announcement he mentions that the driver will only work with composite and S-Video output and is currently limited to a resolution of 800 x 600. The TV output needs to be forced through xrandr right now. The latest commits to the Radeon RandR 1.2 branch can be found in their gitweb.
