There are a lot of puzzled people out there wondering what the hell the holdup is with the CableCARD PCs that supposedly launched. We have, after all, been promised CableCARD media PCs since Vista's launch in January; a couple early units have made it into the hands of extreme early adopters, but wh

Another DCT's been announced, this time by ATI, and this time predictably called the TV Wonder Digital Cable Tuner.
