More information would be helpful. What kind of interface are you using between the TV and the card? What's the resolution you're trying to drive onto the TV? Is it widescreen or regular? What resolutions can the TV handle (should be in your TV manual)?
A TV that can act as a monitor, should work with no problems (I'm doing it at home with OpenSuSE), but resolutions can be picky. Try booting into XP, then show your display properties. It may have resolution, color depth, and refresh rate in it. Adjust your X display properties accordingly.
