from what I understand, the opensource radeon drivers are not equiped
to properly handle HDTV streams in Xv. The ATI fglrx drivers however
are. I don't know if they support TV out on your card, but they do on
my laptop's Xpress 200M.

the support documentation for the fglrx drivers, as well as a google
search should be all you need to get going.
