Solved.
I downloaded the linux drivers from ATI website. The rpm they have
didn't work since it's missing a dependency that yum doesn't install.
So I downloaded the 40 mb installer and ran it.
I did the following in the terminal.
aticonfig --help ( This explains how  to setup your driver for a tv )
aticonfig --initial
aticonfig --enable-monitor=tv --tv-standard-type=VIDEO

and that's it. Start kdm from the console.
Selinux needs to be disabled or a new policy created that allows the
driver to function. Otherwise X doesn't start.

Hi again Ej!

Thanks for the report.  I recently picked up a 16MB video card at a
used shop (about $3 if I recall) and it has video in/out.  I now enjoy
the increased screen resolution (1280x1024 @ 32bits) and after this
exchange will find a cord to test the video out.  We have a new
camcorder and so the video in may prove useful (USB already is
useful).

SELinux is certainly on my reading/learning list!  Here is a starter I
found on the web:

http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_books/writing_SELinux_policy_guide/ index.html

Enjoy!

I forgot to mention that you should also apply the following.

aticonfig --force-monitor=tv

kill and restart kdm for it to take effect.

As to selinux, enter the following in the terminal:

# /usr/sbin/semanage fcontext -a -t textrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/xorg/ modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
# /sbin/restorecon -v /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drives/fglrx_drv.so

Set it back to enforce if it wasn't. Kill kdm. Reconfigure your X with aticonfig. Start kdm, it should work with selinux now.
