Asteio Home Theater PC

ASUS has officially released the Asteio D22, its latest media hub targeted at dedicated home theater enthusiasts. Built with TV recording in mind, the D22 ships with a dual TV tuner that can display and record two analog or two digital broadcasts at the same time. Programs can be scheduled for recording as far as two weeks in advance, and the resulting media can be accessed from the Internet through a broadcast-to-go feature compatible with computers, cellphones, and almost any other mobile device.

More details follow after the jump.

The Asteio is also one of the few home theater PCs to include HDMI output, ASUS claims: using the video acceleration of its built-in GeForce 7600 GS video, the computer can easily connect to any TV or other HDMI-equipped displays to display full, 1080p video even if it uses HDCP encryption. The system stores files on a 250GB hard drive and includes both external SATA and FireWire for removable drives. ASUS says the system responds as quickly as the user needs courtesy of its CPU: the 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo both maximizes performance for HD video decoding and keeps the system quiet, operating no louder than 26 dB. Support for Intel's Viiv standard equally guarantees that the system can wake from standby quickly and handle its media role smoothly. No price or launch date is officially listed for the D22.
