I am using a Matrox G200, and I am very pleased with it (and with mplayer's
mga_vid module) Thanks mplayer's developers!!

Now, I would like to buy a dual-head video card (I like matrox) that allows me
to use both monitors in console and Xwindows mode (preferrible console), is that
possible? if so, what cards do you recommend?

But the strong reason is to watch TV in one of the monitors (I am planning to buy a
tv tuner also)

Does any of you have a similar setup? I would like to be able to work in both monitors
in console mode, but how is that possible? How to switch between monitors? or is it
better to buy a PCI video card instead?

Thanks :)

P.S. Any advice for a tv tuner card is also appreciated (I would love closed caption)
