This is the second of five articles about my Windows Media Center build in anticipation of the new Ceton CableCARD tuner release. Tonight I will be discussing the motherboard, CPU and cooling fan that will be installed into the Alienware P2 Chassis.
This has been my first full week with my new CableCARD ATI Digital Cable Tuner and I will explain how the unit is working with Windows Media Center 7. In addition, I will attempt to briefly explain how Copy Protection works and my next step in addressing Switched Digital Video. UPDATE: The video is now working!
This Friday Microsoft opened up a whole new world of media by enabling the Digital Cable Advisor in Windows Media Center. Running this tool will allow your system to be tested to accept and work with CableCard™ Digital Cable Tuners. No more hacks or copied PIDs. No more searching for OCUR compliant computers. Thank you Microsoft.
