    A lot of cheaper PCI TV tuners are actually USB tuners with a PCI-USB bridge bolted on. Bizarrely it works out cheaper than a proper PCI implementation as only the dearer OEMs make actual PCI tuners.

    On XP you can use a registry hack to trick Windows into thinking a removable device is in fact non-removable, but it's not especially pretty and I have no idea if it works on later versions of Windows.
