Simultaneous TV Output

Why can't current graphic adapters support simultaneous TV-Output these days? What changed for them to disable this feature which was common on older chipsets/cards?

Currently suffering from a problem where one of our Audio Visual PCs has died and required a new mainboard etc. Stick in a current PCI-E nVidia something a rather with it's TV out only to discover that it can not run both displays at once. We use the TV-Output to send video to a monitor which in turn feeds a visual mixing desk and outputs to the big screen in the Crocosium.

Now we're trying to track down a card that allows this which isn't as easy as we had hoped.
