With a release date of 07/18/11, you can now preorder the SiliconDust HDHomeRun PRIME 6CC for $499.99. This new six tuner CableCARD tuner would compliment any HTPC system that currently uses cable and Windows Media Center.
I spent a few minutes with Jason Ludka over at the SiliconDust booth watching cable TV on the HDHomeRun PRIME CableCARD tuner yesterday. In addition to the PRIME CableCARD tuner, SiliconDust has three new digital tuners for 2011. Check out some of the pictures and specs from the booth of these very compact tuners!

Do I get HD? Why did my picture not go to HD after the digital transition. What is Switched Digital Video? If you have had these questions check out this article!
