Windows 7: Anyone know how to view video on Dual Displays?

Anyone know how to view video on Dual Displays?

I am in the market for a good tv video card and would like to try capturing my cable feed. Can someone recommend a relatively cheap card that accepts cable coaxial?

The real question here is if I have dual display on dual DVI, how can I make the displays play back the video as one LONG big screen, even though there would be a bar in the center, I would like to see what it looks like.

Can this be done? Thx

Well, there is an easy way for some applications....

One of the hotkey settings is span both monitors and maximize. I just did it with my Firefox browser window....

As for a TV Tuner card, well, I am personally using the not so cheap WinTV PVR 1800 from Hauppauge - works like a champ. I want to get the 2250 so I can have dual dual tuners - record from one and watch on the other....

Yeah, the 2250 is great. Dual hybrid tuners and it works to it's full potential in Windows 7.
