I have a pvr250 in a TYAN thunder k7 (with PCI-X slots) and a PVR 500
in a Thunder K8W (S2885) with pci-x slots too. Currently I know the
pvr 500 is in the only pci slot on the board and I am not sure what
slot the pvr250 is as this is an older board. If you want (when I get
home) it would take me 10 minutes to put the pvr 500 in a pci-x slot
and post the results.
