You might still use a VGA card and get very good TV signal output.  
The matrox cards can do interlaced output with perfect field  
alignment. There might be some lip sync issues though, but the  
softdevice plugin gets better every day.

Matrox cards can do composite and s-vga (and scart rgb with an  
adapter) output.
