I glanced at these boards because at one time I wanted to replace my old 
nexus card and I only want to use multi-tunner cards from now on. I 
could not afford any upgrades now though:(

But one thing I noticed is, they only support 8PASK modulation and not 
the others, 16/32. While they may not be used much now, if usage does 
pick up, then these cards are useless and the money wasted. If I had the 
money to spend on new tuner cards, I would hold out for one that covered 
the possible modulations better.
