I think a single video card with 2 feeds out- 1 computer monitor and 1 
mythtv composite out is just fine.

I run a combined Mythtv FE and normal workstation- composite feed to TV, 
normal kbd/mouse/VGA for my other work.  It works OK with 0.19 except for 
when some of the Qt popup panels want to grab focus from my computer 
monitor.  I have it set up with 1 X11 server, 1 display, 2 screens 
attached (mythtv logically "below" normal computer screen).  AMD Sempron 
running at 1.6GHz, 1GB memory, have had no performance problems.  This is 
also my mythtv BE box (a combined FE/BE).  I don't do HD, just 768 lines x 
512 (PAL digital TV DVB-T).  Quality is v good, I can see when the 
stations have done a bad job at encoding, so I figure my setup is quite 
good enough until I get a big plasma and a dedicated HD mythtv FE.

I can post my config files if anyone is interested... I am going to cut 
over to 2 separate X servers at some stage which should get rid of the 
focus problems.
