One of the more interesting CableCard HTPC solutions, the SilicondDust HDHR CableCard device is accepting signups for their beta beginning today according to the SiliconDust forums:
The beta is moving ahead as planned... beta signup now online!
As mentioned earlier this year, the SiliconDust HDHR CableCard device is interesting because of these two facts:
- This device appears to be coming in a USB version AND a networked version. The networked version should work much like the current HDHomeRun QAM tuners meaning it will require no open “port” on your computer.
- SiliconDust has been a leader in terms of unique tuners and constant updates to keep their devices supported through continuing changes in the TV and HTPC world.
I’ll provide more information as I learn more. In the meantime, you can sign up for the beta by following this link.
