- TV-out and no monitor

I'd like to assemble a "media centre" pc to view dvd's, internet tv, etc.
I guess I'd need a video card with tv-out, as I'll have just the tv screen
and no vga monitor.
My problem is the following:
will I see the bios screen and everything I normally see on a vga monitor
*before* the operating system loads the video card driver, thus enabling
I'm asking this question because I have a laptop with tv-out and I see
nothing on the tv screen until linux starts the X server (and loads the
videocard driver) or until windows completely loads (so loading the video
card driver too).
Many thanks for answering.
