expert help please - recognition of pci riser card in low profile case
Im thinking of buying a low profile case for a media pc.
The only catch is that it uses a 3-layer riser card for the pci bus.
I assume putting one card into it should be a matter of just plug and play, but wanted to ask if Im setting myself up for a series of hassles if I want to plug more than one device into it.
Is it relatively simple to put say, two tuner cards into one of these and have Linux recognise them? - or can I expect there to be hardware recognition/useability issues?
Thanks to anyone with experience who can shed some light on this

The riser-card won't be the problem. It's basically just giving you more PCI slots. The only problem you might run into is hardware/driver compatibility with your tuner cards.
