It's Official - Ceton Tuners Now $199

Feb 20 2012

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

The e-mail I received from Ceton also stated that if you buy more than one InfiniTV 4, either PCI-E or USB, the 2nd one is only $169 for a total price of $368 for two.  You can buy one of each or two of each type, but you have to buy them through Amazon via the link they provided in the e-mail.

Wow. That's a sick deal if you have a use for that many tuners.

From $100 per tuner to $50 per tuner in a year and a half....I wonder what we'll see a year and a half from now.  $25 per tuner?

hmm... i definitely dont need this, but if anyone wanted to buy my dual-tuner hauppauge card for a reasonable price (i dont know, say 45$/tuner, ie. 90$ total) i would upgrade, if for no other reason than eliminate one more wall wart.

Oh wow this is awsome news, it makes me very interested in going back to an HTPC platform.

What do you mean go back?? Is there another option Innocent I think this HTPC line is now just starting to get good.. With prices falling, we still haven't seen the best..

Could this mean the 6 tuner card might be out soon? Smile

I read another thread where Eric Kotz from Ceton said it's in the works, but no release date has been announced yet.  I'd guess they're concentrating on getting the Q DVR and Echo extenders into production first.
