Question Quadro4/xinerama/xvideo question

I have a few questions about the capabilities of the Quadro4 NVS cards with Linux. I would like to run three LCS displays using digital interfaces in xinerama mode (1280x1024 per screen) and need to be able to display a video window (xvideo) at any position on any screen. The video window would most likely be 640x480.

I would appreciate any feedback on whether this is possible (and reasonable) with the current state of the Linux drivers. Would a Quadro4 400 be the way to go or would two Quadro4 200s (1 AGP and 1 PCI) be better? My understanding is that a GL window will only display on the first screen, is this the case for xvideo also?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Well I can't give a good recommendation about which board(s) to go with, but i can tell you about xv... I have 2 geforce2's in a system (1 agp and 1 pci w/twinview) and i can run xv outputs stretched across ALL 3 displays no problem
