I have had a number of older GeForce cards that did not display
anything on TV out until X loaded. The BIOS and console output simply
did not display, even when the TV was the only device attached. I
wouldn't rule the card as bad until you have attempted to load the
nvidia drivers and used nvidia-settings to turn on the TV-out.
Here is the Device section of my xorg.conf file. This is for a much
newer card than yours but is essentially the same as I used with my
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "GeForce 7950 GT"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "TV"
# Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Option "UseEvents" "True"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
I think that my older cards couldn't detect the TV connection on their
own and I had the "ConnectedMonitor" option uncommented.
Hope this helps,
