BTW: I'm not getting at you in this mail - just the people who responded to you. Why does happauge's website still advertise the PCI DVB-T if it is end of lined? I suppose they might be a bit slow to update it, but its a total pain if this is true. I've mailed them myself for confirmation. I'd suggest mailing Technotrend directly to find out if the cards will work in your servers - happaugue basically just rebadge them, so may not be aware of their full capabilities. As I said previously, the tda10045 based DVB-T cards definitely work in the PCI slots in your picture. Additionally, the cards _have_ the two chunks missing - why would TT specifically make the card physically compatable with these slots, if it wasn't a universal card? That would be just asking for lots of people complaining they broke their machine when they plug it in and it fries it! Attached file is the connector from the TDA10045 DVB-T card I have here - clearly showing the dual chunks missing from it. NOTE: much OLDER hauppague DVB-T/S cards were not universal, and did not have the two slots. Hence they did not fit in some of the PCI slots in our serverrs.
