Today we received official word from Ceton that they have begun shipping their InfiniTV 4. The first batch of units has already been sent to their retail partners. If you were one of the first to pre-order then you will probably receive your tuner next week. Demand for the card was higher than the rate in which they are able to manufacture them, so not all pre-orders are being sent out this week. Orders are being fulfilled on a first-ordered, first-shipped basis.
To coincide with the release Ceton has also updated their support page to include downloads for the driver, detailed installation instructions, and even a link to Cannon PC’s installation video. If you pre-ordered the InfiniTV 4 you might as well head on over and grab the downloads. That way you can have everything ready when the card arrives at your house. You might also want to get a hold of your cable provider to find out if you will be required to have a technician install the card for you. If so, you’ll probably want to get that scheduled soon. The card is beautiful to look at, but you’ll enjoy it a lot more once once there is a CableCARD securely inserted into it!
If you haven’t ordered a Ceton InfiniTV 4 yet, maybe you should check out our review to see if its right for you.
We have some great news! The Ceton InfiniTV 4 has begun shipping!
The first batch of production units have landed in the US and are en-route to the Pre-Order Program retailers (Zones, Cannon PC and Fluid Digital). As we mentioned previously, they will ship to consumers on a first ordered/first shipped basis. We expect this first batch of units will start arriving at consumer homes starting next week, depending on the shipment method chosen when the pre-order was placed. As we also mentioned previously, your credit card will be charged when your unit(s) ship and some people will start seeing credit card pre-authorizations and charges starting this week. The production units are being produced in waves, which means the next batch is currently being manufactured, and will follow this same process until all the Pre-Order Program units have been delivered to your doors. We will continue to manufacture and ship all Pre-Order Program units as fast as we can but it will take some weeks for the entire backlog of orders to arrive at their end destination. Thank you for your continued support and patience.
We also want to let you know that we have posted the InfiniTV 4 Installer application, detailed installation instructions, an installation video (courtesy of Cannon PC) and warranty information on a new InfiniTV 4 support page on our web site.
Important note for FiOS customers: due to recent changes related to encrypting content on some FiOS networks, we will be posting a firmware update on the support site above for FiOS customers only. Non-FiOS customers can install the update but there will be no benefit.
