So with this card and the right ATI AGP card I can get OTA HDTV via DVI?
I believe so. That's how the Fusion card works. It's the HDTV tuner and passes the transport stream over the bus to the video card (in my case an ATI 9600 Pro) which outputs the video to your monitor (or z2 in your case) in one of three ways, in a window on the desktop, as the "wallpaper" behind the desktop, or (most useful for dedicated viewing) as full screen. You also have control of resolution and aspect ratios...
With the ATI card either your VGA port or your DVI port can be selected as the main display and (optionally) the other port can be a secondary display which can be different resolution and positioned above, below, left or right of the main display. If both display devices will accept the same resolution/scan rate, you can overlay one on the other displaying the same thing on both monitors/ports.
