Ceton InfiniTV 6 ETH – Six-Tuner CableCARD Ethernet Network Tuner for Win7 and Win8 PC 5504-DCT06EX-ETH
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Now you can break out of the cable company's DVR and expand your recording capacity to however much you want - with 6 tuners non-the-less.

I've got this as the only tuner in my house and use it between 2 PCs.

It works great I actually forgot what it looked like because I've got it in my data closet and I rarely open it.

Cons: It took a little finessing to get it working the way I like it. It initially appeared as a 6-tuner, then I set up a second PC to use it but then it said there weren't any available tuners for the first PC. I then removed and then re-added it to the first PC and it appeared as a 4-tuner. After cycling power/rebooting everything it got added correctly.

Other Thoughts: I've got a dedicated Win8 Pro system for my Media Center PC and a wired GBit network (with non-cheap hardware) in my home. I've got a SSD for my system drive, so I have a super-fast boot, and use a standard HDD for my recordings.

Every 3 months or so I will have to cycle power on the Ceton because my PC will say there were no tuners available. Everything in my house is on a UPS so there are no unexpected power cycles.

I also do not use the beta firmware, but make sure to update this device before you set anything else up - super easy using the Ceton Diagnostics software.

Western Digital WD Green WD30EZRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Relatively cheap, low energy use storage drive.

Cons: I ordered 4 but one was DOA. I won't blame WD for this one though, the box took a beating during shipment and the drive that failed was in the impacted corner.

Other Thoughts: Kind of slow.
