Re: Getting a CableCard and Tuning Adapter

Yeah. It's gotten much easier now since the new FCC regulations went into effect in August. You can do that or just call them up and have them ship them to you.

I don't know why everyone doesn't go this route. A CableCARD + PC tuner like HDHomeRun Prime or Ceton InfiniTV 4 is miles ahead of Time Warner's overpriced rental DVRs with their ugly, sluggish interface.

You want to send me the $300 to pay for one of those?

Since you think everyone should be going this route and all seemingly no matter their financial situation.

If you have the "financial situation" that allows you to spend thousands of dollars on cable every year then you can afford a PC tuner card.

I spent close to $30/month on a HD-DVR (with the same slow ugly interface we had 10 years ago and 160 GB drive) and 1 additional single tuner cable box that couldn't record. Now I have 3 tuners that can record, a modern interface (it's HD wow what a concept!), and unlimited storage (currently have a 750 GB drive dedicated for recording, but I could upgrade it if I ever need) all for $2.50/month. This will pay for itself in 10 months. That's less than a year. And I get all those benefits mentioned already. It really seems like a no-brainer for anyone that is at least a little bit technically inclined.

Not really. But thanks for just assuming everyone is as well off as you obviously are.

So what, you're stealing cable then huh?

Good luck with that in a few years when Time Warner is done killing off analog
