I've put a 1x tuner card in a 16x video slot and it worked. Doesn't matter if the slot is black, blue, orange, pink or purple (and some are ), it's still a PCIe slot. That was on an mATX board with on board video. OTOH, you still need a video card on most ATX boards.

At 20 I had a good mind. At 40 I had money. At 60 I've lost my mind and my money. Oh, to be 20 again. --Scary
