Ready to get more from your HD content? Media center system manufacturer VidaBox is now shipping CableCARD-ready systems for customers looking to tune and record HD Cable directly on their media centers, the company announced.
The new CableCARD feature is available in the Lux and Magnum systems, which already include a silently cooled nVidia 8600GTS video card to render back crystal clear video in full 1080p, support for up to 7.1 Dolby Digital HD and DTS HD surround sound, and options for 2 additional OTA HD tuners (for a total of four tuners), 4GB of RAM, and up to 5TB & 9TB of onboard VidaSafe-protected storage, the company says.
Recorded HD Cable content can be streamed and played back on up to five connected Xbox 360 systems, and music, pictures, video, and DVDs stored on the system can be streamed to 10 VidaBox media extenders, according to company co-founder Steven Cheung, who adds that the capability is ideal for users who want to access their content anywhere at home, regardless of where they are.
The new line of VidaBox media center systems with CableCARD support is available through dealers.
