Often true, but TV cards still need 5V PCI.
I have a DVB-t card that works fine in a PCI-X slot, and it looks like
the more recent (2388x based) Hauppage cards should also work.
What about v4l cards? The old-fashioned analog signal?

Exactly what I said above:


You can tell it's a 3.3v card because it's got an two notches in the PCI connector.

This is new information for me, and very useful. Can someone confirm a tv-grabber card working in analog mode on a PCI-X bus?

I need NTSC cards and I'm pretty much limited to saa713x, as I have to be able to pull audio directly off the card and to do closed captioning (bt878 might work but cx88 won't).
