True, but it may add another 5-10W to the idle power consumption (my
estimate, with no rigorous data to back it up).  That might impact the
OP's goal of minimizing power.  Also, the OP wanted to keep the same
physical size as the TiVo box, which limits him to low-profile cards
(and also makes it harder to use passive CPU cooling).
