I was hoping to be able to record HD cable feed on Windows Media Center. I need a PCIe x16 slot for the graphics card and a second PCI x16 slot for the HD tv tuner card. I found the DP45SG and figured that would work. I have a Radeon 4550 graphics card and a All-In-Wonder HD tuner card. I've installed the drivers for both and they both appear in the Device Manager as installed and working properly.
However, when I try to set up the TV in Windows Media Center it tells me it can't because it doesn't detect a tuner.
In the small print for the motherboard I found that the second PCIe slot is for a second x8 graphics card. Is this not a, for lack of a better term, "full bore" PCIe x16 slot? Will the above configuration not work on this board? Do I need to upgrade to an AT motherboard?
