I tried going over to Ceton's website and noticed it's not working. Checked the domain registry and it's says its valid thru May of 2020

The Ceton Diagnostics Utility also now fails to connect when looking for latest drivers/firmware/updates.

Definitely appears to be the end of days.

I have saved copies of the latest 13.06.03.1088 InfiniTV drivers (for 4-tuner and 6-tuner hardware), for both Win7 and Win8. If anybody needs these for some future WMC rebuild just PM me with your email address and I'll provide you with a download link URL.

Well, seems there's one more unexpected consequence of the Ceton site going dark.

Turns out the Google Play Store no longer has "My Media Center" available for download to your Android phone.

Thankfully I already had it installed on my Samsung S10. But if you get a new phone and don't do a "smart transfer" (i.e. Samsung's magic wizard that copies everything from your old phone to your new phone), you're doomed. So even if you have the PC side server software installed (or re-installed for a new from-scratch Win7/WMC reinstall) you won't be able to get the phone client app installed for MMC, say on a brand new phone.

Aha! Nevertheless, this does depend on actually having the app currently installed on an existing phone of yours, in order to be able to extract it for install on a second phone.

For a brand new first-time user just now getting into WMC and Ceton cards, the app's disappearance from Google Play is yet one more unwanted challenge that has to be overcome along with the upcoming disappearance of MS support for Win7, disappearance of working Digital Cable Advisor from within TV Signal setup, etc.
