The TV tuner is probably getting 0 channels because you still need a CableCARD and a special type of box to get the digital channels.
Regardless of the tuner, does it really run that hot? Is the build quality THAT bad? Could you elaborate please?
I'm thinking of biting on this one but your comment has steered me away.
Actually, it works great after three days burning.
Power consumption is 25w full loaded (2 x 4GB = 8gb ram , 250GB hard-drive).
what I said "bad quality build", inside and outside are very rough, motherboard is ECS , TV tuner/wi-fi actually are directly connected the internal 4-pin USB port.
the quality build cannot compare with Foxconn and Zotac made ( I also own Foxcom and Zotac e-350 based mini-PC)
generally, it is ok all purpose small PC .
the TV tuner is ATSC (OTA) tuner, no cable-card needed
