Anything labeled "CableCARD" will work with FiOS. So yes, the Hauppauge will work.

The Hauppauge WinTV-DCR-3250 is currently $150 on sale from Best Buy and it has 3 tuners. The Hauppauge WinTV DCR-2650 is usually the cheapest around $100 since it has 2 tuners.

There must have been a sale earlier on the HDHomeRun Prime and now that the sale is over the price is back up around its usual.

I don't have much more left to buy and I need to learn as much as I can.

2 Tuners is fine with me question is Hauppauge tuner let's me for example : wirelessly watch live TV via windows media center like silicondust does? this is what matters to me a lot.

As I will want to watch on my PC,PS3 and laptop not always at same time though.

PC and PS3 will be wired at all times but this is for my mom her laptop has 5ghz bands and my router has a dual band 2.4 ghz and 5ghz.

Thanks guys

Based on the devices and how it sounds like you want to use your PC, laptop, and PS3 the HDHomeRun Prime would be the only tuner that gives you the kind of flexibility you're looking for.

The HDHomeRun Prime is currently the only CableCARD tuner that can run standalone and support DLNA and DTCP-IP for streaming to other devices like the PS3 without requiring a Media Center PC. Your PC and laptop can use Media Center to view and record TV programs too as the tuners with the HDHomeRun Prime are dynamically shared so any device can use the tuners as they request them.
