There is no menu that would be in any way specific to loopback
streams. Just find the loopback stream, use the normal stream menu and
move it to another device, it isn't that hard.

I guess what is true for SAA7134 is true for the other TV cards, too:
since there is no commercial interest pushing Linux support the
drivers are limited.

Also, I don't have a TV, no TV antenna, no TV cable, so this is really
not among the things I regularly test. Sorry.
