G'Day List,

Just wondering if someone here has an old AMD motherboard and/or cpu
laying around in their spares draw that they want to part with.

I have a dead CPU (AM2 Socket AMD x2 64 (I think around Athlon 3200+))
or motherboard (Gigabyte GA-M52S-S3P) here that has been running my
main MythTV server for the last few years, not sure which component
has died yet.  If I can get something of each that is compatible then
I can figure out which has died, if not both, and hopefully be back up
and running.

Have been trying to buy a new motherboard and CPU, but I need at least
3 PCI slots to take the TV Tuner cards.  All new motherboards now seem
to only have one or two PCI slots, having moved on to PCIe.

So figured I'd see if anyone here has something they would like to
pass on, am happy to pay a reasonable amount.

Alternatively, does anyone here on the list that runs MythTV boxes
have any success stories with DVB-T PCIe cards that are fully
supported that I could upgrade to?  LinuxTV.org is still fairly light
on for any PCIe cards that actually work.
