    Is there a dab pci card, other than the Mod Tech which seems to be unavailable. If not, is there a way of adding URL's of station web sites to be able to listen to digital radio on a HTPC.
    Also, can anyone tell me if any of the Freeview PCI cards have the option to pad the recordings so as not to miss the last few minutes if the programme overuns.

    Does it have to be a PCI card ? There's this USB card available.

    Excellent ! This is something I've been looking for, can't understand why there are more DAB cards around.

    Do you think this would interface with the likes of MCE/Meedio/Media Portal instead of using it's own interface ?

    Richie.

    Thanks for the info. The main reason I am looking at a HTPC is to have a one box solution. I already have a dab turner which I could use.
    I'm surprised that there does not seem to be a PCI card available.
    Any info re using MCE or Media player to access the radio over the internet would be helpful.

    There used to be a couple of PCI solutions, but I can't find any now !

    Seems strange. I'd be interested to know if there's any particular reason for the apparent lack of anything PCI.
    It's the same with AV receivers, AFAIK they all still come with analogue tuners.
