I haven't enabled the hardware output, for two reasons. First, I have a 
stack of mpeg4 files left from when I used software encoding. Second, 
it freezes if I do so :) (well, black screen... don't know if the 
machine freezes).

Theoretically, you can use the frame buffer just for the TV output 
conversion... that's what I'd like to do.
