Hi all

I plan on getting a MacPro but I wish to know if PCI cards for PC (lke Happauge satellite TV tuner for example) will work on a Mac if I run Windows on it?

The idea is to use Mac for everything (Blu-Ray, iTunes, Safari...but I want some free satellite tv straight out of the Mac!

Thank you
QUOTE Thanks

No. You need cards that are designed to work with a Mac Pro. Firmware is different from a PC. It doesn't matter which OS you're running, the machine is still a Mac Pro.
