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
