For NTSC video (non-HD), the hd-2000 card is mono-only sound; the 
hd-3000 will be stereo.  They are both just frame grabber cards, so 
you'd use software encoding (and thus need enough CPU to do so).

That said, you can't currently use both NTSC and ATSC (HD) modes in Myth 
on the same card; you have to choose one or the other in setup.  I have 
no direct experience with using the NTSC side of the card.  Maybe 
somebody else has tried it and can comment.
