I can tell you OpenGL doesn't work with with the ati driver either.
Last time I compared the two (about a year ago) the tv-out quality of 
the ATI version was and is clearly better than the Sis model. (even 
after upgrading sis drivers and tweaking lots of settings and doing a 
lots of reading on winischhofer.net 
<http://www.winischhofer.net/linuxsisvga.shtml> ). Maybe the sis driver 
has evolved in the meantime but if not, the ATI, even if it is a pain to 
install and hex-edit their videodriver to get the tv-out working, would 
be the better choice.
