Is it possible to use multiple input cards in conjunction with multiple
outputs, and direct each card (or rather, the shows recorded with it) to
its own output?

Say, i use a WinTV PVR-350 to capture analog TV and a pcHDTV to capture
Then i'd like to play analog TV back through the PVR-350 (using the S-
Video connector), and play the HDTV back through an NVidia card (using
The reason i want to do that is to preserve the interlaced format for
analog TV and let the HDTV set deal with it (let the HDTV set
deinterlace it), while the HDTV signal must be played back through DVI
(so the NVidia card deals with it).

Moreover, perhaps add a DVB card too, use it to record satellite shows,
then play those programs back through the same DVB card.

Is that currently doable with MythTV? Or do i have to use a single video
output device for everything?
