Submission + - Alienware: CableCard Not Ready for Mass Market

An anonymous reader writes: Alienware doesn't think CableCard is ready for the mass market. The Dell subsidiary is coming out with some high-end Media Center PCs but won't sell them directly to consumers because the HD-enabling CableCard "requires the expertise of a reseller and installer." CableCard was supposed to be the savior for Windows Media Center, which has been inhibited by its inability to support high-def content. Alienware made its fortune by selling tricked-out computers to gamers, so it's telling that the company doesn't think its traditional geeky customer can handle CableCard without professional help.
