[size=7][font=Arial Black]Just wanted to know if I could run two tv tuner cards so that I could get more than 125 channels. I have satellite and over 200. :thumbsup:

Been ages since i had a TV card in a machine but does not the software store the channels rather than the card?

Also if the signal is comming from a satellite decoder box into your pc then it is probably all going to go through the same channel on the card as the tuner card will not be decoding the satellite signal.

Off hand I'd say no - the tuner has to be satellite capable. I've got a Hauppage PVR card (and got rid of an All in Wonder card) and both are limited to 125 channels. 2 cards will get you the same 125 channels twice! :thumbsup:
