Some HD tuner cards can also function as simple frame grabber analog  
cards as well (the HD-3K for example). I'm not sure if the A180 can  
do that or not, and switching between modes can sometimes be tricky.

But if you have the slots available multiple tuners are always  
desirable, I certainly wouldn't throw away a working card.
