I love this site!
I'm planning my own build which I hope will eventually have, amongst other things, a mythTV backend to serve TV over ethernet to various XBMC clients.
Anyway, my question is - do I need a discrete graphics card to accompany a TV tuner card? Does it depend on the card, cpu etc?
For info, the CPU is a core 2 duo e5400 with 4 (soon to be 8) GB RAM and I would probly get a pcie x1 dvb-t2 card (looking at tbs 6280/6284, but I'm interested in whether there's a generic answer rather than just for these cards).
Also, if I do need a graphics card would a PCI do the job? Reason being I want to keep my pcie x16 slot free for a SAS HBA in the future, and I'd rather not have to buy a dual-slot pcie x16 board as well as all the other stuff I need.
