    PCMCIA Tuner with SAA7135 Chipset

    Hi,

    New to the forum, so I dont know if this has been asked before, but using the search function, I didnt get any information...

    Here goes:
    Im building a carpc with VIA MII motherboard and a standard ITX case (with no PCI possibilities). In order to have FM possibilities I am thinking of buying a PCMCIA TV Tuner card with FM, a PixelView PlayTV Mobile 4in1 card, with DVB-T, analog tv and FM tuner. The problem is that as far as I can see the chipset is Philips SAA7135 and as I am gonna use RoadRunner frontend, I need a card with support in Radiator. As far as i can see, the support for the SAA7135 chipset in Radiator is not that good (if it is even there?).

    So the question is, is there anyone with a similar card, that can tell me if Radiator supports this card, another frontend maybe or another program like radiator that can be used?

    Thanks in advance!

    Mine's a PCI TV/FM tuner card manufactured by TV card WDM Video capture and run on Philips 7130 chipset, It did not run with radiator although the Radiator website say it will. However it did run on the Axife FM Player Delux 2.35 and plugin http://www.carpcs.net/dragonbtv/FMpl...lugin10151.zip and tested on Frodo player. So good luck.
