Yes, sure, menus and everything, just like on the normal FF card output. 

xdtv uses /dev/v4l/video0 to get the video data and puts it on the
xvideo overlay of your graphics card. See the output of xvinfo to find
the right xv port, then use e.g. "xdtv -xvport 74". If you don't have a
free xv port, xdtv still displays a picture, but fullscreen zoom
apparently is not possible.
