Wow, I cant believe there is a thread for the ceton infinitv 4 HD tuner card! Awesome...
I built my HTPC about 5 months ago, been waiting for my new basement build to finish up to install my HTPC in the AV rack in the family room, and conntect all my CAT6 lines up to my 24 port switch.....
I have 4 tuners available with my single M-card, and have been playing around with all 4 tuners running, seem to be working great, I really wished they were working on drivers for Linux, after I built my HTPC with win7 home 32bit, for some reason it was not installing the new updates from microsoft, I had to call ms, and have a tech do a remote 2 my desktop, and do a major repair to my OS, because of how screwed up it was, just from a new install, the tech asked me if I had any other computers where I could at least access the internet while he was trying to repair my HTPC, and I said yea, my Ubuntu Linux pc has never failed me, and it's almost 4 years old, and the tech laughed..... Would love to have some Linux support with this card....( XBMC )
Very nice plan you have there! With my HTPC set-up was using 3 media center extenders and 1 tuner open for recording.....
I also wished Ceton would build a 8 tuner card, why 6? There a limitation with the card it self?
Reason: If anyone wants to at least use more than 4 extenders, hence needing another tuner card, then you can get 2 more tv's and 2 tuners for recording, see my point?
Going to a 6 tuner card, only gives 1 extra tuner for an extender / 1 tuner for recording, where we are gonna pay big for another m-card, just for two tuners.... Just skip 6 tuners and go straight to 8.....
Looking at what people are paying for an additional m-card per month, and just the cost of the ceton card, will take several years to pay for it......
