"Primary display" was meant in respect to what X considers it, not what
you want it to be - so to be more specific, can you connect both a
monitor and a TV and they will both display something?
Next question is what do they show: Exactly the same image or do you
have a virtual screen that stretches both or...?
I don't have an ATI card, so I can't say anything specific for that, but
I had two "Screen" sections in my xorg.conf, one for my LCD and one for
a display - maybe exchanging them in the "ServerLayout" section helps...
I attached it, maybe it gives you some ideas, but note that
1) its for an nvidia card
2) I'm just experimenting, so expect some weird settings *g*

Well, testing the opensource driver (without OpenGL support) is not much
effort, so I'd try it...
Trying -vo xvidix might be interesting as well (though you need to be
root, and no idea if freevo can use it).

No idea, last time I checked all tools to configure X were crap, so I
use vi ;-)
Otherwise I'd suggest you maybe try some other app that uses xv, I
actually think it is a configuration problem (ask on the xorg list then)
or ATI drivers don't support overlay on TV out (trying the opensource
driver might help then, from what I read you can't expect any help from ATI...)
