Hi everyone here at Geekzone, and thank you for reading this post. 
I would like to know if any of you know if is there mayor differences between this cards beside that 3000 version has PCI interface while the 3300 has PCI-e interface.

the reason I ask is because a mate of mine purchased aHauppauge Wintv-HVR 3300-HDbut he does not have a mobo with PCI-e but I do and my card will work in his computer for sure as it has PCI socket mobo. So what you reckon should I swap it or not?

thanks again guys,

The main difference I'm aware of is that the HVR-3000 can only use one tuner at a time (DVB-S or DVB-T or analog) while the HVR-3300 can use both DVB-S and DVB-T at the same time.

Also, I'm willing to trade my HVR-3000 for an HVR-3300 as well.

thanksmichaelt for the reply about the 3300 able to use both tuner at the same time and I was wondering if the pci-e bus is any faster than the pci bus by any chance. 

thanks for reply I think I will swap my 3000 for my mates 3300 lol

The bus speed difference between PCI and PCI shouldn't make much difference for tuners as they don't saturate the buses. When you consider that PCI carries 133 MB/s at base speed of 33 MHz, 30 Mb/s transponders really pale in comparison...
