VidaBox now shipping CableCARD systems with Blu-ray & HD DVD support VidaBox has announced that it is shipping CableCARD-ready systems for customers looking to tune and record HD Cable directly on their media centers. "We're absolutely excited to finally ship systems with CableCARD, Blu-ray, and HD DVD support everything in one box," said Steven Cheung, a co-founder of VidaBox.
He added: "These systems answer the prayers of many of our customers whove been clamoring for a total, turn-key solution with the latest in HD technology. Now complete with life-like HD cable support, our customers can finally realize their HDTV's full potential beyond just Blu-ray & HD DVD."

The new CableCARD feature is available in the LUX & MAGNUM systems, which are already packed with 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 4 tuners), 4GB of RAM, and up to 5TB & 9TB of onboard VidaSafe-protected storage on the LUX & MAGNUM, respectively.

"CableCARD-ready VidaBox systems can also act as a safe & secure digital media repository," Steven continues. "Recorded HD Cable content can be streamed and played back on up to 5 connected Xbox 360 systems, while music, pictures, video, and DVDs stored on the system can be streamed to 10 VidaBox media extenders. This is perfect for users who want to access their content anywhere at home regardless of where they are."
