Cut the cord and went with this device. It comes with a subscription for the guide but it's affordable for the lifetime option. Strongly recommend this - does everything your cable company offers and without their prices (and many of their channels which are mostly accessible via direct subscription)
I needed this to upgrade an ancient Linux Mint box (3GHz Quad core, 2GB RAM). Originally had a 7600GS, but had lately started having problems with video playback on some websites. This cleared it up. Installed with no issues, OS detected and upgraded the driver without any issues. Went together like Legos.
I've had Dish and Directv for the last 15 years, and I don't miss them since I got Tablo. This works flawlessly! I watch shows that I've recorded at home while I am away from home on my phone or computer. I don't miss my $100+ monthly Dish bill one bit!
