I'm running into the same problem....

originally i was trying to get TV-OUT + CRT, using twinview or using the RightOf/LeftOf options in XFree's ServerLayout, but now i'm focusing on just getting the TV-OUT to work under X

similar to above i see the boot messages, i get the graphical lilo choices ( i did have to add an option in lilo vga='ask' to get past an "unknown mode passed error) then you see the kernel booting up and the "OK" messeges start scrolling by....

then under runlevel 5 (set in inittab) i get a handful of flickers - i assume this is when the card is trying to find a suitable resolution, then i get a screen stuck with the last "OK" messages from boot

if i set inittab to 3, the same thing happens except without the flickering

i have to ssh to the computer to do anything.

tried with the monitor plugged in, currently i'm only leaving the SVideo plugged in...

in the XFree log i get similar messages to above...
my logfile snippet:
