1 out of 5 eggstv tunener for windows

Pros: none

Cons: this looks good till it is in your machine and will not keep itself installed it is crippled by the video copy right. (cxxx) that windows has to protect against piracy. DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

Manufacturer Response:

Copy protection is set by the cable company, not us or Microsoft. Per regulations, CableCARD TV tuners from any manufacturer have to enforce this copy protection.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable at best

Pros: When it works it is an awesome product. Does what is says it does. A 4 Tuner cable card tuner that works with Windows Media Center

Cons: a stiff wind will break this product apparently.
I originally purchased this product in Dec 2012. In that time I have to RMA the device twice and now the device is not operating properly again and would need to be RMA'd again but is no longer covered under warranty. I am IT expert. I build my own computers, manage/repair servers, and do networking. working with hardware is something I do for a living. So my advice is to find a different product. Search the web on the Ceton devices and you will see lots of stories of people with issues with them. The Green Button forums are filled with them. No phone support the only way to contact Ceton is thru a ticketing system on their web site.

Other Thoughts: I am disappointed. I wanted this device to be part of my centerpiece media system whole home DVR. It could not keep running properly at all. Even the drivers are dodgy. One of the Ceton windows services for the tuning adapter stops running and needs to restart on a semi-regular basis. Going to acquire a different cable card tuner for my system.

2 out of 5 eggspigtail breaks too easily

Pros: Good video quality, works well with Windows Media Center.

Cons: Pigtail Coax connector breaks easily making the card worthless; incompatible with some NVidia chipsets

Other Thoughts: Pigtail connector used to connect the card with a COAX cable is far too flimsy. Any amount of pressure on it can damage the tiny gold connectors causing the card to be unable to receive video signals. Rigid Inflexible Coax cables connected to it can cause excessive pressure on the connector, causing it to break very easily.

4 out of 5 eggsStill running strong

Pros: I bought this card on 7/29/2011 and it's still running strong. 4 tuners, reliable, was significantly more expensive when I bought it but has paid for itself several times over.

Cons: Having it shared across the network is horrible in my opinion. The host PC cannot be connected via wifi...only the clients can do that. Regardless of that I have everything wired and multiple times weekly I'd get some variation of tuner error from WMC and would have to restart all PCs with a shared tuner for them to work again.

Other Thoughts: Overall this card is a winner if you only plan to use it in a single PC.

I recommend using this for your recording, then share the recorded folder to the PCs on your network for easy access.

If you want live TV on multiple machines with this card, get two.

Manufacturer Response:

Thanks for your nice review! One thing we’d like to point out for readers is that the recommended product if you want to share tuners on your network is the InfiniTV 6 ETH model. It’s designed as a network tuner for exactly that purpose whereas the InfiniTV 4 PCIe above is designed as a single PC device, as you mention.

Also, a wired network is recommended when sharing TV tuners between PCs. WiFi isn’t fast enough or reliable enough to consistently deliver HDTV cable channels in most homes.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as Expected

Pros: Works as expected and I expected quite a bit. Main pc set up with three tuners, second pc has one tuner. One WMC extender set up receiving channels. Video carried flawlessly over Gigabit LAN to all devices.

Cons: Seems to have dropped cable, or the ability to receive the cable signal after the media center pc was on for more than 24 hours. Have not diagnosed yet, as it has only happened once, but should be getting strong signal.

Other Thoughts: The biggest detractor to this card is out of Ceton's control. Cable companies are their own biggest enemies. Their customer service doesn't win any awards or sympathies. The included numbers from Ceton help with the pain, but only a little.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat alternative for HTPC

Pros: 4 Tuners for watching &/or recording digital TV over cable.
Can record to HTPC drives (12 TB vs. 500 GB on DVR).

Cons: PITA to set up with clueless support from cable company. Finally got to the cable card people and got things straightened out.

Other Thoughts: Persistence pays off: after clueless support finally got to the real tech experts and things went smoothly.

1 out of 5 eggsWhen it decides to work

Pros: Digital quad tuner

Cons: Will randomly turn off, leaving scheduled recordings put out. At this point a reboot hangs due to the Crash of the card

Other Thoughts: Maybe 65% uptime, huge pain when it crashes. Only reason I picked it up is local Cable went to all digital, my old Analog tuner had 100% uptime with PC running 24/7. This will crash at least 2 a week

4 out of 5 eggsSome Trouble, But Worth It!

Pros: Can tune 4 hd channels at once, integrates with media center with little effort. Get rid of those ridiculous DVR box rental fees. Verizon: $18/PER BOX vs. $4.95/PER CABLE CARD!! Price for initial setup is low, especially if you are just adding it to your existing computer.

Cons: Takes a really long time for the tuners to let's say "Warm up." After windows boots it is literally 5 minutes before the tuner card is fully functional, I get a no signal in media center, but the card diagnostics says it is fine, I leave my Media Center on 24/7 so that is more of an annoyance than a deal breaker..

When switching channels it takes between 2-12 seconds to tune depending on HD/SD and data-rate, I have Verizon and they don't alter the streams from the networks so there are wide variations depending on the channel and program.

Also, Had to get several cable cards before I was able to complete setup, even the card I have now says it hasn't been validated but since it was successfully authorized on Verizon's side it is still fully functional, once again, just more of an annoyance as the software diagnostics give you a red x instead of a green check mark, but is still fully functional.

The HDCP requirement have led to a few issues, one being you can't use dual display (Mirror Desktops) which is a shame if you like to have the same image on 2 TV's, it will only work with 2 monitors if you extend display and have two separate desktops.

Other Thoughts: Technical support is amazingly fast, I received answers almost immediately and if you are having issues I suggest going to them first as the cable company will make you get proof it's actually a bad cable card, or an issue on their end anyway. And with a quick diagnostic snapshot button in their software it couldn't be simpler. Verizon on the other hand took 3 cable cards, like 8 support agents, and 5+ hours of me telling them to send a new card.

Also, activate the card through the phone system, the online activation system caused problems every time!

5 out of 5 eggsI like it alot

Pros: Works far better than the Hauppauge card it replaced. Easy installation, bug free drivers, excellent video quality, and quick tuning. I’m currently using it with WMC but may switch to XBMC.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I read about the fragile coax connector before I purchased it. I used a 1.5” hole saw on the back of my entertainment center so that there was zero strain on the coax connector. Works like a champ.
