 As far as I know there are no X drivers for displaying X on the TV out of this card (VGA pass through is not the same as outputting to the TV) except for some experimental stuff I wrote a while back which never got finished.

 You could certainly get Xine or Mplayer to use the EM8300 based cards for 
display. At one point I had a modified myth running that would use the em8300 
for playback only (not menus or X) on an old p166 I was using as a diskless
frontend. I started working on displaying X on it when I got an MediaMVP which
I now use to replace that frontend.
