I don't know about the quality of the TV output, or the Linux 
compatibility, but you can certainly get Radeon and GeForce cards with 
TV-out in PCI versions.
For example here (Australian retailer): 
http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/show_image_products.php?input[category_id]=107

Any card which advertises TV-out with composite output should be a 
fairly simple plug-and-play operation with any normal TV (once you get X 
or framebuffer or whataver set up)
