Good point!
Can you give some hints on how to configure TV-out, that may also apply to
other chipsets?

Make sure you have xserver 1.3 or later.  grab the randr-1.2 branch of
the radeon driver.  I haven't added load detection yet so you'll have
to manually force it on.
xrandr --addmode S-video 800x600
xrandr --output S-video --mode 800x600

and that should do it.  Let me know if you run into any problems.
