    Hi

    I'm looking for a low profile digital tv card for a HTPC without any success whatsoever. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Cheers!

    Although it's not really low profile, I have an Avermedia DVB-T PCI TV card (no longer available on OcUK) where I was able to remove the back plate and it fitted nicely into the back of a Dell Optiplex (GX50). It's not the best of TV cards but it seems to do the job.

    A usb one where you simply place the box inside the PC may solve the problem also.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I'm not keen on usb as it would spoil the aesthetic of my lovely case. :)

    Anyone know of anything else?

    Thanks for your reply. I can't find any reviews on that card, does anyone know if they're any good?

    If anyone knows of any other low-profile cards, please let me know.

    Cheers!
