Not to go off-topic (since the user asking the question seems
satisfied), but how exactly would what you proposed work if you have
cards providing different video standards (such as having one card
connected to over-the-air ATSC and the second card connected to a
ClearQAM source)?  You cannot assume that all cards can be connected
to the same video source.
