Ceton InfiniTV 4 PCIe - Quad-tuner Card for Watching Digital Cable TV on the PC, PCI-Express x1 Interface
  • Record Four Channels at once
  • Stream HDTV to home network
  • Windows Media Center Support

Pros:

No monthly fees like TiVo

Cons:

Unreliable -- intermittently misses recordings, partial recordings
No support forum
Support people are condescending and unresponsive to firmware issues

Other Thoughts:

It can work without issues sometimes for weeks, and then for no apparent reason, it will have numerous missed recordings and partial recordings for days or weeks. Checking Ceton's "crashlog.txt" shows that the actual firmware is crashing and rebooting the card, resulting in missed recordings.

If you check the various forums, you will see that many people are experiencing similar problems. It is intermittent because you only notice it if the card reboots while you are recording a program (or about to record). Some have speculated it is a memory leak in the firmware that causes the card to randomly reboot.

Ceton has know about the issue for at least 3 months, and they seem unwilling or unable to fix it. Ceton is a small company and I suspect that they have abandoned supporting current products in order to work on building their new products (Q and Echo).
