Well, Hauppauge provides drivers for some recent devices...

In the general case: "Maybe"

PCI and USB passthrough tends to work interestingly,
and for timing sensitive solutions (tuners may be
timing sensitive) you may end up getting various
artifacts and operational challenges.

However, I thought (I could easily be wrong) that
the Windows BE only supports network tuners.

Presuming you have the time, there is nothing wrong
with testing your specific case, and you should
report back with the results.
