Default Help, eyefinity + hdtv?

Just looking for a little advice, I currently have 2 computers side by side. One running 3 monitor eyefinity and the other is a basic htpc. What I am trying to do is get rid of the htpc and run 3 monitor eyefinity plus the tv as a separate extended display. What I am thinking is that I need another video card to run the tv alone on. Could anyone shed some light on this?

I'm currently running a 6870.

Not sure it's possible on AMD

you can run surround (3 monitors) +1 on Nvidia though. I'll let someone else pipe up though as I have 0 experience with AMD surround set-up's.

Incase anyone else has this problem... turns out the 6xxx series cards don't support what I was trying to do. I solved it by getting a cheap 5450 and running the hdtv off of it.

Cheers,
Paul
