I'm having some pci shortage issues so I'm considering upgrading
my pvr250's to a pvr500.  First do people consider the driver
stable (compared to the pvr250) for daily usage?  Can the
driver be mixed with a pvr250 in the same machine?

Secondly, it looks like the picture at buy.com of the pvr500
is slotted for both 3.3 and 5 volt, is this true?  All the
other cards I have are 5.0 volt only.  A 3.3v card would be
very nice because I have a PCI-X server in the system where
I can't use 2 available PCI-X slots because they are only
3.3v.  This could be a real life saver to be able to use
those slots.
