          Officially: No.


          In my  experience, only apps which use the  standard  MediaPlayer.framework will work with the iPhone AV cables.   Those app  include Quicktime, YouTube, iPod, Safari, and Streamtome.   There are  probably more but those are the one I've used personally.    Unfortunately, the Slingplayer for iPhone only uses bits a pieces of  the  framework with a custom UI overlay, so it does not support TV out   natively.


          Jailbroken:  Yes (via Cydia apps).


          In the MediaPlayer.framework API there is a class  called  MPTVOutWindow that can be used to force TV out.  Unfortunately,  its an  undocumented class, so its not offically supported by Apple.  All  of  the apps that have tried to used it was denied on the iTunes App   Store.  However, if you have a jailbroken iPhone you can get apps like   TVout2, Landscape TV Out, or ScreenSplitr in conjunction with the   Slingplayer app to support TV out via the Apple Composite or Component   Cables for iPhone.
