Good news: update from Ceton today! For one, it has a name - the InfiniTV 4. Second, they managed to eliminate the fan that the card was needing - this shaves almost 2.5" from the card's length.
Bad news: small (2 month) delay for shipping. First orders will be shipped on May 31, 2010.
Good news: there is now a pre-order program
in place that's set up with Zones.com. Submitting a pre-order (obviously, the sooner the better) will guarantee you a card from the first production run.
Price remains at the previously-disclosed amount of $399. You will not be charged until the product ships.
And, the newsletter: [quote="Ceton Corp"]As you know, weâ€™ve been hard at work for many months developing our quad-tuner digital cable product and today we want to give you an update on where things stand. To be frank, itâ€™s a good news/bad news situation, but weâ€™d rather be up front with our customers and fans as opposed to trying to sugarcoat things.
First, letâ€™s get the bad news out of the way so we can focus on the good stuff. The Ceton quad-tuner card will unfortunately not ship on March 31 as we had planned. The new ship date is May 31, 2010. We know this isnâ€™t welcome news, and trust us that no one is more disappointed in the delay than we are, but our #1 objective is to ship a great product and if that means taking some extra time to do that then we believe thatâ€™s the right decision for everyone.
Why the delay? There isnâ€™t any single reason, or any major â€œshow stoppersâ€
