Do you have X >= 4.0.1 or not?  
Also you can try defining 640x480 in your XF86Config file, most
software switch to this mode on full-screen.  Try searching the docs
on whether the Xv extension is supported on your Video card.

You probably have an integrated VideoCard/TVtuner.  Yes, they do
suck.  I'm talking about Pixelview PlayTV TV tuner here.  I've seen it
in action, and one thing I know about it is that it works under
both Win2k and Linux.
