I use the multiple vdr instance hack proposed in xineliboutput documentation. My 2xDVB-T(dual tuners) and DVB-S2 cards are PCI and they are in a separate "home server" that runs in non-living areas of the house so noise doesn't matter. There are also several hard disks. I don't know what happens if that mobo dies. It could be difficult to find motherboards with enough legacy PCI slots. I need four because there's also one extra network card. > My current setup has two pci-cards, Full > featured Technoternd dvb-s, and an other TT budget dvb-t.

At least for dish I need PCI type of card because USB cards do not output enough power for a motorized positioner.
