News - Ceton infiniTV6 PCIe Pops At Retail

If after reading our review of the Ceton infiniTV 6 Ethernet, you thought "awesome now to wait for the PCIe version" the wait is over. Not only has the product page showed on Ceton's site it's also available from Amazon and Newegg. Having spent some quality time with its sibling, I can attest to the beauty of removing tuner scarcity from your PVR.

News - It's Official - Ceton Tuners Now $199

Ceton InfiniTV 4 USBIf you stay on top of the current deals, you surely noticed that both of the InfiniTV models dropped $100 over the last few days on Amazon and other retailers. One-off discounts aren't generally news, but today it became official with Ceton announcing that they are changing the MSRP of their Digital Cable Tuners (DCT) to $199 making it the clear value play (@ $50/tuner) versus the competition.

It's probably too soon to call it the first strike in a price war, but it's never too early to hope Smile

News - Elgato App Debuts; Allows iPad 2 to Watch, Pause and Record Cable TV Directly From SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME CableCARD Tuner

Have you been dreaming of watching, recording and pausing Cable TV on your iPad 2? An interesting app from Elgato called the HDHomeRun PRIME App now provides that functionality. It's currently available in the App Store for $17.99.

You will need to get your hands on an HDHomeRun PRIME, of course. Only "Copy Freely" content will work so that's something you'll definitely want to confirm with your cable operator or verify your Windows Media Center recordings are not copy protected before laying down the cash.

In addition to watching, viewing and recording directly to the iPad 2, recordings can be moved to your PC or Mac. We have learned from SiliconDust that background recording and audio is supported as well. Press release after the break.

News - SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME General Availability Begins Labor Day Weekend

It appears SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME production is now in full swing with the announcement that general availability of the 3-tuner model (3CC) will begin Labor Day weekend at select online resellers and retail stores in addition to www.HDHomeRun.com. If you're looking to get your hands on the 6-tuner version (6CC), general availability will begin before Labor Day weekend. Fulfillment of all pre-orders will be performed before general availability of the products. It's probably safe to assume that Amazon will be one of those online resellers, but it will be interesting to see if the aggressive pricing that was posted near the end of June will still be in effect.

News - Ceton InfiniTV 4 USB Has Passed CableLabs Certification

Ceton has just let us know that the InfiniTV 4 USB model we saw at CES has passed CableLabs certification. Sure enough, the latest CableLabs certification list includes a new entry from Ceton with the model number 5102-DCT04EX. It seems likely that retail availability is close at hand and we wouldn't be surprised to see the InfiniTV 6 making its way through CableLabs shortly.

More good news! Ceton InfiniTV 4 USB has been CableLabs certified. Stay tuned for more!

News - Hauppauge USB Cable Card Tuner Named, Priced and Passed Cable Labs Certification

Hauppauge DCTImage
Do you remember when we posted about Hauppauge's Digital Cable Tuner (DCT) product back in January? We found out that it was a dual-tuner USB model and speculated that the price would come in around $150. Well, it turns out we were off a little.

Hauppauge has posted about its soon-to-be released DCT named WinTV-DCR-2650 on their Facebook page. The main details are the same, but guess what? The price is going to be $129! 

No release date has been given, but a little digging revealed that the latest Cable Labs certification device list shows the DCT has been certified effective June 30th so it is likely to hit the market within the next few months.

Thanks to PLUCKYHD for letting us know about the Facebook posting.

 

UPDATE 1: As brennok pointed out in the comments, Hauppauge have responded on their Facebook page that pre-orders start Monday and shipping is late-July.
