Well, since most motherboards come with a few PCIe x1 slots now, and you
basically have next to nothing to put in them, meanwhile having less
regular PCI slots, a PCIe tuner was welcome for me. I got the HVR1250.
There are a couple of others on the v4l-dvb wiki.
So the other advantage is simply you can put more tuners in your machine
once you're out of regular PCI slots!
