There exist PCIe -> PCI converters, the one my local dealer offers converts one PCIe to 4xPCI. (Price-point is about 150 EUR IIRC) AFAIK there are no specific limitations to which PCI-card can be used in that thing. So it shouldn't be a problem to get enough PCI-Slots even with recent mainboard that mainly have 3/3 PCIe/PCI and last but not last 1 PEG. Bis denn -- Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated, cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
