thx, i will check this, xinerama isn't needed for me.
but You think abt. "DisplaySize" or "Modeline" or sth. ?
if answer =="Modeline" so there can be problem with xorg radeon drivers 
(I use VGA-SCART connection, tv is analog) - not every modeline works - 
sometimes i must check hsync/vsync with oscilloscope - but why not to try...

understand, but i think checking mpeg capability of card is better rhan 
name regex - what about analog cx88-ivtv (sth. like this exists - 
currently integrated into cx88 root) wrapper or others maybe in future

currently driver returns "saa7134" as his name

this driver isn't new, i try to change behaviour of old 
saa7134-empress/saa6452hs (mpeg encoder) installed on some saa7134 cards.
my main goal is to add possibility of tuning etc from second mpeg video 
device.so this device can partially acts as sth. like ivtv.
maybe we can do temporary workaround - checking "ivtv" substring 
presence in device name - i'll modify this in driver (eg. sth like 
"saa7134-ivtv" when emulation is enabled)
