Doug Knox: This is so very, very cool! For those of you who are considering buying a new Windows Vista PC with one or more Digital Cable Tuners (DCT), there is hope for some rockin' systems. We've seen various announcements that Niveus will be shipping a Vista Media Center PC with support for four (4) Digital Cable Tuners and I'm sure other vendors will follow.
I really, really wanted to see this in action, so I asked the Media Center beta team if they could accommodate me. They were fantastic. They sent me two additional DCT devices and the information needed to set them up and have four DCT's working all at the same time! I'd like to include a really big thank you to the Media Center beta team for letting me try this out!!
Now, I've had my Vista machine with dual tuners working since the early days of the beta, so I'm not too worried about screwing things up. So once I had the additional tuners in hand, and ready to go, I called Comcast and scheduled a service call to have the tech come out with the extra Cable Cards.
