we have an x-server running on 4xx core (ibm romeo stb chip), initially using
s-video output, but then modulated composite.. i'm afraid the framebuffer
source wont help you but i thought you might want to be aware of the flicker
problem of televisions..

we have implemented software flicker-free control, but this hogs cpu time, and
will be moving to a hardware flicker-free option in the near future.. we had
to patch the x-server to implement the flicker-free control and this is far
from optimal.. i would make sure either the fads board you are using is dammn
quick, or has built in hardware flicker-free filters..
