TV tuner for PowerMac 5500
My PM5500 has all the multimedia stuff on the back, but it doesn't have the TV tuner card. Anyone know where i can get one of these? I'm assuming it goes to the right of the hard drive since there is a cable there and some plastic retainer tracks.

The TV tuner card slid into the computer on rails. If I recall correctly, there was one ribbon cable that connected to the tuner card. It had a small opening to the outside world, which without the card installed looked like a circle was meant to be punched out of it. That circle indicated the position of the coax connector for cable or antenna.

If you are looking for the card, check on eBay. Lots of vintage and out of production parts are there.

Yeah, there are plastic rails on the upper half of the lower tray area (below the MOBO tray, in the HD/CD/FD tray). It connects through a small ribbon cord. Yeah, thats the area to the right of the HD.

I second the suggestion of eBay...
