fglrx tv out - how to activate?

Hi! I got a Radeon 9600PRO inside my tower.
It runs with the actual fglrx drivers.

gecko@chicka ~/ $ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9600 Generic
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6011 (8.28.8)

I got a low quality self made beamer, connected by the tv out of the card. Under Win (know,... thats this unstable system of ms) it runs.
under linux, i don't know howto activate the tv out of the card.

this is my actual xorg.conf... what i have to add for tv out support?
thx gecko
