Currently, there's just not a whole lot of options
when you're scouting a pre-fabricated rig that does both
HD DVD and Blu-ray on a single optical drive, but adding one more to mix certainly helps. Enter Inteset
, which has just announced that an HD DVD / Blu-ray combo drive will be an option in the firm's Maximus and Denzel media server systems. The machines will reportedly come loaded with CyberLink's PowerDVD Ultra software, support 7.1-channel surround sound, and sport an array of ports including audio in / out, DVI / VGA / component / S-Video, USB, FireWire, and antenna inputs for the TV tuners. 'Course, since the company recommends that you "contact a dealer for pricing," you should assume that this here HTPC
won't run you cheap.
