Possible to view two TV stations on one PCI TV card Answered

I'm wondering if a TV tuner card in a computer can view two stations at once because I don't really want to have a server with a TV card that is inadequate for the network...

. My card (Leadtek WinFast TV2000XP) will do PIP.

Depends upon the card & software. My set up will preview all channels (although I never use that). I'm sure it's possible - how hard have you looked? L

Well, I can't really use the card I have at the moment because it doesn't want to function, It had a "tv wall" feature. I don't know if it was supposed to show all the stations in real time, because they just seemed to keep scanning through and putting a new frame in each every loop... Will your setup give audio for all of them (if you networked the card, would every station get sound)

I think mine's like yours, and as I said I never use that feature (just know it's there). Having thought about it I shouldn't think many / any cards can decode two streams simultaneously. Like Joe Martin suggests.

It would have to be a twin tuner card for it to work.
