Assuming you can use the same antenna to get both I would think the
simplest way to get this working in Myth is to modify the internal
pcHDTV support code to expose the ATSC and NTSC tuners of the card as
different inputs. You'd then create two separate video sources and map
one to the NTSC tuner and one to ATSC tuner. Myth would then naturally
know that it can't use both inputs at once.

I have a card on order so perhaps I can play with this after it arrives,
in between fiddling with the new DVB patches. :)
