Pros: I own seven single turner version of the Simple.TV. I have each turner setup to a specific OTA network which minimizes the problems with recording shows during the same time slot. The single turner version works great for me. Based on my experience with the single tuner version, I ordered a dual tuner from New Egg. With the dual tuner, it should be possible to record more shows on the same time slot. Fyi, I also have Silicondust dual tuners working with Windows Media Center / Windows Media Buddy and these work perfect. A Windows task scheduler handles the Windows Media Center / Windows Media Buddy file conversion.
Cons: I have given up trying to get the Simple.TV dual turner to work reliably. The dual Simple.TV device is hooked up to the same RF system that the Simple.TV / Silicondust turners are hooked up to. The dual Simple.TV allows me to record / watch shows but it is not a reliable device. I find it in a non-responsive mode more often than not. Reading the Simple.TV post, you need to reboot the device to fix the problem. Guess what, the single turner Simple.TV doesn't have this problem nor does the Silicondust turners. Simpe.TV has a problem with the dual tuner and needs to fix it. I'm done being part of the extended debugging team! When I bought the device from Newegg, I intended to use the DLNA features that were advertised. Guess what, that's not supported either even though I have a Simple.TV pdf that says otherwise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has Gigabit ports. Pretty standard stuff now on newer routers.
Cons: Firmware hasn't been updated since 2006. You would like to see new features added over time but it looks like this is not the case. I bought a new Asus RT -N16 which has plenty of support.
Other Thoughts: I own one but don't use it anymore. Doesn't seem to be actively supported via firmware updates.READ FULL REVIEW
