I'd argue that the Ceton InfiniTV is the best way to get encrypted HDTV on your PC today
I'd also like to point out some of the things that Ceton has done for the HTPC community, that to the best of my knowledge, none of the other vendors have pushed for:
-Gotten Microsoft to fix multiple WMC bugs, and guide-data issues
-Pushed various operators to replace obsolete/buggy versions of CableCARD and TA firmware (example, I pretty much made it my personal mission to exterminate Cisco TA firmware 1402, for instance)
-Pushed the operators for better CableCARD support and pairing processes
I will absolutely state that I feel that Ceton has done far more to help the WMC community than any other OCUR manufacturer. In fact, I am not aware of any of the other manufacturers pushing for similar things.
