Media Center and Cable Card: Reliability Issues

November 27, 2008

Overall, I am quite please with Vista Media Center and my system with dual CableCard tuners, but one of the annoyances that plagues my installation is that once every few weeks one of the tuners will stop working in such a way as to require a reboot to get it running again, or a tuner will take too long to get a signal and fail to record a show. Ordinarily this is not a problem, because with two tuners, the shows I care about end up getting recorded on the other tuner and some Simpsons rerun fails to record. However, this past week I failed to notice for six days that both tuners had failed, resulting in a week of lost shows. Hopefully this sort of reliability issue will be addressed in Windows 7.
