I was hoping to keep it a closed box without add-ons hanging off it.  I
understand the ease of use of USB, but for a machine like this, it just
seems to make sense to plug the cable wire into the back of the machine
rather than into some little USB dongle.  I might have to break down and go
USB (definitely not Ethernet since the machine will be using that jack for
it's internet connection), but I'll keep looking into a PCIe Tuner (found a
few on TigerDirect) while I get the rest ordered and assembled (Shuttle
case, Intel G33 mb, 250W ps, 2GB Ram, Intel Core 2 Duo ??Ghz, Fan, ??GB hd,
and Lite-On DVD Burner)...
