Unfortunatley I cannot elaborate, I think it may have something to do 
with the internals of whatever hardware they were selling, if you read 
the 'system requirements' it just says you need an empty PCI slot.

I have a refurb EMachines, running an AU31 mother board 
http://www.e4allinc.info/dir1/motherboards/socketa/au31.htm there is a 
Hauppauge card in each of the PCI slots (PVR-350 + 2 PVR-250's), the 
machine has been on 24/7 for the last 4 months with no problems.

Please contact me off list if you have any other questions,
