The best TV output support hands down on linux is achieved using a  
Matrox G550 with DirectFB. It support field accurate interlaced output.

If you need hardware assisted decoding there's some new support for  
VIA unichrome hardware, see eg. 
index.php/CLE266_MPEG_decoding . Fields accurate decoding is coming  
to this chipset eventually. This is a motherboard integrated solution  
however, so might not fit your requirements.
