There is a dma issue with the ivtv driver for the pvr 350 that prevent
from doing this kind of setup :(
Anyway, if you try, X will eat all your cpu :( and both X (one on the
CRT and one on the PVR350) crashe.

Here is my config when I tried :
drivers : ivtv 0.6.??
X : xorg 6.8.2
distro : debian
Main graphic card : Ati 9600 Pro with free driver which come from X
(not ati one)

So I setup a button on my remote control to switch between the two displays.
