CableCard tuner in 2018?


Post by mymce » Thu Dec 27, 2018 4:01 am

I was attempting to set up a Hauppauge Wintv-DCR-3250 in the United States. I received an error message in Media Center that tells me this tuner is no longer supported in the U.S. There is a Microsoft link for a list of compatible tuners, but the page has been replaced with an add to upgrade to Windows 10 ( surprise surprise).

Please suggest a tuner that is currently functional in the USA at this time. I am running Windows 7. I would prefer an Ethernet interface, and as many tuners as possible.
Thank you in advance

your best choice is a HD home run prime but I have heard that they are hard to find with no 6 tuner version yet available, you could pick up a used Ceton InfiniTV6 from ebay for $150 ... :2:pf:0but Ceton support will be unavailble . I f you need one right away get a prime 3 off ebay, or hold out for the prime 6
