add secondary PCI card (anything will suffice)+converter, and set up 
TV-compatible mode in your Xorg.conf

this will give you actual TV output with right resolution and refresh 
rate, not some crappy on-the-fly conversion of your VGA framebuffer done by cards with TV-out.

see this:

it's for windoze but with that data you should be able to make custom XOrg 
mode mathing your TV. it's for PAL, you will for sure find the right 
data for NTSC standard.
