I just got an e-mail that Dell has Digital Cable Tuners now
on the XPS 410. Check
them out, I’ll have more coverage at a later date as I’m currently out of
Wait...I thought OCAP was delaying media centers ;)
WHY WHY WHY do they force Bluray on us??!!! Dammit, why can't someone just come out with a basic HTPC with HDMI out and dual ATI cable card tuners???? That's all I want, nothing else!!!
And what's with the limiting CPU choices? Either an E6320 or an E6700 for an extra $300.
Yes, there seems to be no way to add a digital cable card tuner unless you select the high end Blu-ray model. I hate Blu-Ray compared to HD DVD but that's completely beside the point. There is no reason that they can't sell a sub-$1000 cable card ready PC even if it means the tuner still has to be purchased separately.
