A PC can work without a graphics card!

Did you ever get TV-out of sVGA under linux working properly? I have tried
several cards - no success: black stripes (no overscan possible), with a
resolution of 640x480 or 800x600 60Hz or 75Hz the picture quality is very
bad because it have to be scaled to PAL (e.g. 720x576, 50Hz interlaced).
This scaling is bad for the quality.
Maybe one solution is to set the graphics card to 50Hz and 720x576
and use the RGB input of your TV. I remember somebody did this,
but this may not work with all graphic cards.
