Current state of cablecard on Windows
What is the current state of Cable Card support on Windows? My last exposure to this was several years ago when Ceton and HDHomeRun had tuners running in various configurations in Windows 7. Has anything changed? I know there is an ongoing effort to get these tuners working on Windows 10, but I don't know if there's been any success.
I currently use two Ceton PCIe tuner cards in my home server in a networked bridge configuration for use on my 32-bit Windows 7 HTPC's. They still work fine, but I'm looking into upgrade paths for these machines. Specifically, I'd like to go to a 64-bit OS with a metro-like interface. Can I go to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 in this configuration? Can I go to Windows 7 x64 and still maintain the tuners over network bridge? I could install the tuner cards locally into the HTPC's but I'd rather not go that route if I can avoid it.
I have been experimenting with a Windows 10 x64 build on one of my HTPC's. I can get the Windows 8.1 version of Windows Media Center running and I have managed to get the Windows 7 x64 version of Ceton's drivers to install. I've run the Digital Cable Adviser and run the Ceton setup tool in WMC, but I get an error "unable to find tuners" when I go to setup live TV. I'm currently researching this error, but so far I'm coming up empty. I'm wondering if It's worth going any further.
Thanks for your replies
