I never tried TV-out but external monitor works fine on this same
hardware using the (probably patched) Ubuntu's Xorg and the following
configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "RV350 NP"
        Driver          "ati"
        BusID           "PCI:0:16:0"
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "false"
        Option          "CRT2HSync"             "30.0-70.0"
        Option          "CRT2VRefresh"          "50.0-160.0"

# External monitor is a viewport into the panel
        Option          "MetaModes"             "1280x854-1024x768"

# or make both the panel and the monitor display 1024x768
#       Option          "MetaModes"             "1024x768"

# With this you have multiscreen. Without you have just clone
#       Option          "CRT2Position"          "LeftOf"
