[mythtv-users] supported TV out

I want to set up a secondary Myth box.  It's a bit weird so I figure 
I'll post and see if I can tap into some of the experience here.

The base machine will most likely be an Athlon 1800.  This is strictly 
for SD playback.

The display is a regular TV, so I need composite output on a AGP video card.

The computer will also be used for a workstation, so ideally I want 
something that can drive a VGA monitor with a regular X session as Head 
1 and the TV with a myth session as Head 2.

The workstation won't be used much; some light text editing, email, and 
surfing; most likely running a lightweight desktop like XFCE4.

It would be really, really nice if the TV could use hardware 
acceleration for things like tuxracer....

I could do this with 2 video cards; one AGP and one PCI if needed.

Any suggestions?
