    I'm just about to start a project to build a htpc with multiple tuners. What I want is this :

    2 x freeview tuners
    1 x digital satellite tuner

    Ability to use Poor Man's Cam.

    I don't mind if the cards are usb, as I believe the pci bus may have difficulty coping with all those cards, but the problem I have is software. Most of the software I've looked at will only support one card at a time (My Theatre, TVEdia, etc), or if it does support more than one card, they need to be of the same type. I see that a reelbox supports all this stuff, so I may have a look at the software they are using, but it's linux, and I'd rather get something in windows if I can.


    cheers,
