Can 2 tv cards (same/different brand) coexist so I can watch, say 2 sport shows simultaneously?
I don't see why not as long as they don't conflist for resources or IRQs. May I ask what cards you are going to use?
I haven't purchased them yet. I'm wondering if 2 different cards would be better than 2 identical ones.
Well once upon a time I used to have a hauppauge TV card and a ATI AIW card in the same computer.
And the new AIW cards sepport picture in picture if you have a second card connected.
If you want to really do it up nice, and your planning on recording stuff as you match it, get hauppage's they have hardware mpeg2 encoders which wont tax your CPU. ATIs rely on software encoding and are asking for trouble.
Yes, they can..
Or, you can just get a card with built in multi-tuners or composites in
Thanks for the advice, I was going to get ATI cards but may now consider Hauppage. Which cards have two tuners? So you can do PIP then? Any of these have splitscreen PIP instead of one small box within a larger one?
