I'm not familiar with that card, but other cards with dual personalities
(HD-3000 for example) can only operate in one mode at a time.

Basically you have to pick one or the other. You would have to figure
out some way to unload one set of modules/drivers, load the other. and
then set up the capture cards again.

It's possible this is not true of this card, but I'd check into it.
