Tuner Card which one.
« on: April 17, 2010, 03:11:04 pm »
So I am very new to linuxmce. I just got myself a core (dell poweredge 2650) I want to get a tuner card to put in it. But since this card is specifically one for the lmce I want something compatible. Here are the slots I have available
two full length, one half-length PCI-X slots (1 x 64bit/133MHz and 2 x 64bit/100MHz)

Here is what I need it to have on it (I think)
An audio in(servers dont come with speaker plugs)
A digital coax in
I wouldnt complain to have some if not all of the bellow
hdmi in(might be stretching my luck)
Video composite in

I would love to hear any suggestions you might have. I dont really know 100% what im doing so all advice is welcome.

Check here and search the forum. I don't have one myself, but from reading the forums, the hdhomerun seems to be the best choice.

If all you need is digital cable, the HDHomeRun is a great choice.  It's dual digital tuners only, so no analog channels, but as a network device it doesn't use any slots in your server.
