I deal with it more from the CCTV perspective, but I am not aware of
any native PCI express digitalizer that is Linux compatible. Conexant
and Techwell do have native PCI-E chips, but again I am not aware that
any support Linux. The PCI-E cards I have seen that do work with Linux
have the same old BT787A chipset and a PCI-E to PCI bridge onboard. On
the PCI bus I am too aware of the issues, sometimes certain
combination of motherboards, PCI cards and other PCI cards just can't
get along. That's after you get past improperly keyed PCI cards, of
course.

I found mine on eBay much cheaper.

HUmm yes looks nice but it is standard PCI i need PCI-e because of the mother
board and it's lack of the correct slots they do not think these days at all
.. the darn video card has caused most of these problems by covering one PCI
slot ( the other option is a very flexible PCI port extending system with a
plug one end and a slot on the other end and about 7 inches of cable between
them
