John, can I clarify a couple of things here:
1. are these PCI (PCIe, PCI-X) cards with USB bridges, like the old
dvico dual 4 ?
2. Do you just disassemble the playtv and insert them in your backend?

Relative to the OP I have been pondering getting one of these quad
tuners [1] now that there is a driver in mainline (as of a few months
ago). Curious if anyone on the list has one.
