Flashy though it may be, Alienware
's first major attempt at a end-all HTPC
solution certainly fell short in a number of areas, but it looks like the brains of the operation are already well aware and looking to make things right. According to a recent interview with the company, Chris Lanier found that Alienware is disappointed by the lack of CableCARD
support in the current Hangar 18
, and while it was "originally supposed to ship" with said technology, the next revision -- "due within the next month or two" -- should
give users the option. Additionally, Blu-ray support will supposedly be included as well, but it wasn't clear if we'd be seeing a writer or just a reader. It's hard out there for an early adopter, eh?
