978 and 1090 on same pi AND dongle?

Just got in to this stuff last night. Set up a Pi4 2gb with RTLSDR v3 and a terrible rabbit-ear antenna sitting on my desk for now, picking up ADS-B within a 60 mile radius so far. Getting an adsbx dual-band antenna up outside shortly to resolve that.

If I swap out the RTLSDR for the FW orange stick and dual filter, is it possible to pick up and feed both 978 and 1090 on the same pi/dongle? Or do I at least need two dongles? I’m guessing the latter. Are there any guides on setting this up or what I need to tweak in my config to make it work?

On the same Pi: Yes.
On the same dongle: No.
