+ - Alienware: CableCard Not Ready for Mass Market

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
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."
