Pros: 6 tuners in external enclosure, gigabit ethernet
Cons: No DLNA support. Constant problems "Service Unavailable", "Subscription Required" and "Tuner or Viewing Conflict" errors. About 5 to 20 seconds to change the channel.
Other Thoughts: I spent over 6 months fighting with the aforementioned error messages. I have opened may support tickets and played musical firmwares. It feels as though I payed a significant amount of money to beta test this product. This product was not worth the purchase price, it has cost me so much more in time troubleshooting the problems that eventually they blamed on the cable card. I swiftly got rid of this tuner but kept the cable card and it is running like a champ.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Record 4 HD channels at once. Reasonable support. Ability to put more than one card in a PC for even more channels.
Cons: The unit gets warm, almost reaches Ceton's maximum recommended temp of 65C. You may need to look into external cooling.
Random issues with tuners disappearing (possible card resetting) while watching TV. All of the sudden it will stop playback and blue screen (NOT BSOD) saying "viewing or listening conflict." Any recordings are immediately stopped and in a couple minutes the card begins working again. Had a problems with the card and had to RMA the cards 2 times so far. The first time the card would not get carrier lock and the second time the small coax connection broke.
