CableCARD Media Centers

Velocity Micro is preparing to ship what should be the first-ever Media Center PCs with CableCARD support -- essentially, special PC Cards that replace the set-top boxes used by many digital TV providers. The technology will filter through AMD's TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuner, which also tunes in QAM, ATSC and NTSC signals. Two specific models will carry the TV Wonder: the CineMagix Pro Cinema, which uses an AMD CPU as well, and the Intel-based CineMagix Grand Theater. The computers are also unique in that they will ship with an optional 2x Blu-Ray burner. They should go on sale in early April, and will start at $1,755 for the Pro Cinema and $2,195 for the Grand Theater. [via DailyTech]
