 Few notes:

- If only the serial port is failing (and that is all you need), you could
get a USB serial adapter.

- Keeping PCI slots is likely a losing long term battle.  You may want to
look at something like the HVR-2250 - I've been using one for a while, no
issues.  It is also a dual tuner card, but PCIE, so should have MB support
for quite a while.  While buying new is expensive, there are a bunch listed
on Ebay for about $40 each buy it now price (which seems to be about the
price of the PCIE->PCI adapters)

- While PCIE to PCI expanders/extenders do exist, I've also heard people
having problems with those, since those often add another PCIE bridge
between the MB and the card.  So that may not be the best route if looking
for stability.

I need PAL support so HVR-2200 would work. Unfortunately, I can't find any
on eBay UK website.

Having said that I only need a capture card which can take composite video
along with stereo audio. Is there any other card which can do this apart
from Hauppauge?
