I'm successfully using the port of the Linux nvidia drivers to FreeBSD=20
available at:

don't know if this works with tv-out, but for me it works better than the=
xfree86 'nv' driver. The nv driver doesn't support dvi connected monitors=
the linux port does, thats my reason for using it. If you know the linux=20
drivers support tv-out then this port should too.
