DVB-C Card on 771 Mainboard?
« on: February 11, 2008, 01:32:43 am »
Hi there.
I'm planning my setup right now, and I'm not really sure what to buy. LinuxMCE is one part of my project, but it doesnt end there, that's why I will setup it in xen (under fedora werewolf)
Now I do have a problem. Since I need a lot of performance for a few of my projects, I'm going to go to the 771 standard, and buy a quadcore 2,4 ghz processor.
But most of the 771 mainboards don't really have too many PCI Slots, so I have a problem getting dvb-c cards in. so my question is.. would you use another computer, just for the TV part ? And what would I need for that one? Performance-wise.
Another solution would be USB interfaces for the cable.

So in conclusion:
1. Would you use a own computer to build the TV interface in my home.
2. Can anyone recommend DVB-C Cards ? USB or PCI ? I'd like to have 4 possible streams, so I guess twin tuners would be great (I think that's how they're called)

Alright.. that's it for now. Thanks in advance.
