I don't think that the XBox has any special decoding
hardware, but it does have a special TV-Out chip.
Which chip you have depends on which revision of XBox
My XBox (a v1.0) has a Conexant 25871, but other XBox
units have a FOCUS chip, and even newer ones have a
different chip. This chip actually drives the TV
output, and the signal comes from the GeForce 3 inside
the XBox. Although I don't have access to XBox
schematics, I would imagine that there is a pipeline
to the CX25871 chip (maybe something like CCIR656
That chip needs to have registers properly configured,
or you won't get anything displayed on the TV screen.
Xebian works fine (I've used it), I've heard that
GentooX works okay, but I don't know about regular
