Though extremely difficult, it is possible...i think.....I too had this same
idea, just didn't have the time to do it. You can run the system
multi-headed. Here is some further info..


Keep in mind that you'll have to probably have more than one sound card too,
and somehow, you'll need to figure out how to control which mythfrontend
controls which soundcard, and there'll be some good lirc configuring to do
too. Please let me know if you make any progress on this, would be a very
interesting and fun project.
