Have you tried generating a config file by Xfree86? aka something like
$ startx --configure

Then a XF86Config file will be generated in /root (when run as root?) with all 
the options the driver has commented ('#option blah <bool>' or something). 
From there on you will probably find things to disable VGA-out and/or enable 
TV-out as primary device.

There are probably other ways to trick the driver to expose all of it's config 
options, but well..
