I haven't gotten around to trying but there's zgv (I think that's what it's called) and others for viewing images. Lynx, w3m, links, others for surfing. Workbone for playing CDs. You can do most things without X. Not sure about your specifics, though. Check software sites with a 'console' filter, or something like, on your searches and you'll turn up some cool non-X apps. I mean, like I say, this doesn't help your question, but just to let you know there's whole world of non-X out there.
