Alienware has officially released its High Definition Media Server. It could have a better name, but after looking at the specs, all is forgiven.
This sexy silver box promises recording and playback in 1080p, a Blu-ray read/write drive, four TV tuners, and 4TB of storage space. It also provides whole-house entertainment via wireless or a hardwired network, as well as remote access from any Windows web browser, allowing users to access digital libraries from anywhere.
Now the sad news: The High Definition Media Server has no MSRP, and you can’t call your local Best Buy, because it’s only available through a professional installer. The company is currently signing up system integrators, distributors and homebuilders for the Alienware Digital Home Channel Program.
