The six tuners can be accessed by networked PCs and media extenders.
At $300, the Ceton InfiniTV 6 brings home six QAM 64/256 tuners. Once combined with a CableCARD and possible switched digital video tuner from a cable company, the Ceton InfiniTV 6 brings both live TV and DVR capability to the user's home PC network.
Right now, the Ceton InfiniTV 6 supports assigning tuners to PCs, but the box also offers as a beta feature dynamic pooling between PCs. For those willing to tackle what is likely and arduous set-up requiring assistance from the cable company, freedom from cable boxes, cable box DVRs, and their associated fees can be achieved.
The Ceton InfiniTV 6 hooks up either directly to your coaxial connection or to a tuning adapter if necessary, and houses a CableCARD. The box then needs a wired Ethernet connection to your home network. The supported PC requirements fall between the narrow lines of Windows 7 or Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. One of the common media extenders known to work with the device is the Xbox 360.
