I can confirm this. With WinXP only ONE Haupauge WinTV card
is supported.
Workaround: several computers with one haupauge card each
or other video capturing card. I'm using a Winnov Videum 4400
4 port card (it's possible to bring this card to work with vic).

.... Und aus dem Chaos sprach eine Stimme zu mir:
     "Laechle und sei froh, denn es koennte schlimmer kommen!" 
.... Ich laechelte und war froh - und es kam schlimmer.
