The breakout box connection to the combination video/tuner AGP card is flaky
so I'm probably going to replace that single card with two cards, one an AGP
video card, and one a PCI tuner/video in. I'm debating which OS to put on
it though; the sticking point is either QAM tuning (which I haven't liiked
into) or my USB-UIRT (pretends it's a remote control to make a cable box
change channels). There were only a few people asking about the USB-UIRT,
and support for it looks spotty at best.

Any idea which cards I should get? Ones not having a breakout box are
preferred, since that way there's no connection to get flaky.
