Default Two TV cards breaks Nvidia driver


I have a HTPC with a Nvidia 9500GT card and using the stable 190.42 driver from the OpenSUSE repository.

I have had this running for nearly a year with one Hauppauge HVR-4000 TV/SAT card without any problems.

Yesterday I tried to install a second HVR-4000 but I am not able to get the Nvidia driver to load with both cards in the HTPC. The only information in the xorg log is that it was not able to initialize the module, no information in the system log.

This behaviour is reproducable. If I take either of the cards out it works, and if I use the nv driver then X starts as normal.

Does anyone have an idea about how to troubleshoot or solve this?

This is on OpenSUSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.
