    Hey,
    Does anyone know of a decent PCIe Tuner card ?
    I'd ordered a Sapphire ATI Theatre 550 Pro card from CCL who told
    it was a PCIe card but when it arrived I found out it was a PCI card. :thumbsdow

    Since I don't have any free PCI slots it either a matter of moving PCI cards around in my machine and getting a new PCIe video card or sending the tuner back and getting a PCIE tuner card if any one can recommend one ??

    I'd prefer the second (cheaper option) :)

    thanks
    R

    EDIT : Sorry should have said Analogue tuner

    If you look at the PDF manual you will see it has a "Designed for Windows XP Media Center Edition" logo.
    So I assume it comes with a BDA driver.

    If you search on the Web you'll see Hush Tech are using them in their MCE boxes - hence I assume they are MCE compatible.
