Wanting to use my PC to watch tv.

Wanting to use my PC to watch tv.

Just wondering what card or device Comcast recommends so that I can use Windows Media Center. I have a friend who is trying to use the Ceton InfiniTV 4 with a cablecard he got from comcast and is having all kinds of issues. Im looking to avoid that. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

There's only three choices, the Ceton card, one from Hauppauge and the SiliconDust HD home run prime.

 

Comcast only recommends their own boxes, and as your friend has found out, some have difficulity getting these tuners working.  At least these companies all have help available, which is more than you get from Comcast cable card support.
