just been going back over this thread - some very interesting stuff so thanks to all contributors thus far. im a bit late to the game but am wondering if the PCIE issues mentioned have now been resolved, the latest bios update (0502 at time of writing) seem to have fixed it but im wondering if anyone has this particular experience...
anyone running the Dual TBS 6981 DVB-S2 tuner with the AT5IONT ? the pcie problems that have existed would make this mobo a non-starter for me.

I have read conflicting information about whether the VDPAU supports multiple h.264 streams. MythTY wiki says no but it's a bit out of date. I have seen lot of reports on this thread and elsewhere that an Atom/ION pairing can easily cope with 1080p video. If VDPAU supports multiple streams, how much can the ION cope with for 2 streams?
I have seem a report on Amazon of someone using a Dual TBS 6981 DVB-S2 tuner with a Zotac ION board, recording one DVB-S HD channel whilst recording another. I am wondering whether the ASUS boards could do DVB-S2 + DVB-S or even 2xDVB-S2.
Could someone do some tests running 2x720i and try steps up to 2x1080p. In the end I think that if I can record a DVB-S2 channel while watching a DVB-S channel, that will be good enough to get a dual DVB-S2 PCIe tuner along with an AT3/AT5.
KuleRucket - did you get this to work in the end or opt for something else?
many thanks guys n gals...
