I have not tried this.  When I got the TVOUT working and found that I lost
scaling and hw accel on head 2, I basically dropped trying to use this card
(at least for tvout/capture) and bought a scan convertor and a win-tv (total
of $110 for both).

Maybe this is a problem with my depth of knowledge what you can do with the
card.  How would you make tvout go to head 1?  *Physically* when I hook up
my system, I have a VGA port (hooked to head 1) and a cable/breakout box for
head 2.  Is there a way to switch the internal hardware somehow?
