Sometimes disabling Compiz is the cure for flickering video. At least one video player I'm familiar with has a flicker problem with intel chipset video.

The issue with the TV and the VGA connection is unsolvable due to lack of sufficient basic information.

to disable compiz you have to start another window manager.
for kde
/usr/bin/kwin --replace
for gnome
/usr/bin/metacity --replace
or back to compiz
/usr/bin/compiz --replace

so i expect you have used envyNG to install the ati driver.
I have not an ati card so i dont know if it has a configuration tool like Nvidia.
with xorg 7.3 it is ment to be self configuring so the xorg.conf file only holds input configuration, if that.
but i think you can still manually configure it, especially for complex configs.
you may have to google for a better config.
I saw someone recently run a command to enable external video output on their laptop, but i dont know what it was.
