Hi Patrick,
thanks for the reply.

It seems that we can run 4 PCI cards with no problems under SD. As i really
dont intend on recording HD much that is not a problem.

Now i just have to find out if the USB tuners are the same. As Brian pointed
out the Math works out but i would like to see if somebody has actually done

The XPC (older shuttle) has one PCI & one AGP so i guess i could combine
both, 1 dual digital tuner & 2X USB tuners and get the same result.
