If you could understood how the product works you would understand that unless the picture is breaking up or is pixelating due to reception problems the Ceton has zero effect on picture quality. We are not dealing with analog channels here. Just pure 1s and 0s.. a pure digital stream. The Ceton has nothing to do with playback it is a capture device and by design captures and writes to disk exactly what s on the wire..
Things like codecs, color space mismatches, not displaying 1 to 1, wrong levels, color gamut and grayscale issues all are common elements on PCs driving digital displays. Graphic card post processing lots of things make PCs tricky to get video right. It ain't the Ceton. Ceton problems are tuner availability and robust of capture and lock to digital signal.
You may have a picture quality issue for dozens of reasons, unless the picture is breaking up the Ceton is not one of those reasons.
Don't compare Over The Air picture quality capture with an ATSC card to Cable. Cable is almost always compressed creating aritfacts. I have 2 HD Homerun ATSC (not Primes) tuners and when the same content is broadcast over the air I will almost always watch the over the air presentation instead of Comcast via the Ceton.
