Thanks Soeren,

I'm just working out how I can free up my single epia pci slot (currently 
running my sata card) so I can persue the pci dvb solution...  Is there 
anything recommended with solid support? (as I mistakenly thought nova-t in 
all its incarnations worked so don't want to make the same mistake twice!)  
I've been messing about with my freecom and nova-t usb sticks for so long now 
that I can't wait to stop tinkering (which is something I thought I'd never 
say! :) )
