2 cards, that's the missing part of the question!

With two cards you can have two resolutions for sure. You will have
two frontends runnig of course. One card with two outputs is more
tricky and depends on the card.

On the HD setup you can have it switch resolution based on the source
material, so something encoded as 720p will cause myth to switch it's
video oupt put to 720p, etc.
