I was all set to order an XPS 420 with the ATI Digital Cable Tuner when that model was discontinued. The new XPS line does not offer that tuner option right now. Will Dell be offering it in a new model soon, or do I need to go order from HP now?
Hi def guy:
As product specifications and options change all the time, it's not immediately known whether that card will be available in future models.
That said, you can always purchase a card 3rd party and install it in in you desktop should you choose.
Best way to get that is USB instead of PCI. Bus's disappear but USB works desktop or laptop.

Thanks for the reply Chris. However, I am referring to the Digial Cable Tuner which utilizes a CableCard to be able to watch and record encrypted cable. You cannot buy that from a third party as it is only available from OEM's with a motherboard that has a Cable Key installed by the OEM. Only Dell and HP were offering them besides a few small niche builders. Just trying to find out if Dell will bring it back through a new model in the near future or whether I need to go through HP now. Thanks.
Does anyone know how to get a password that was forgotten?
a password to what? windows? try logging in as the "administrator" (if you didn't make a password for that), or under safe mode (f8 at boot screen) You Might have to boot a live cd (www.ubuntu.com) then you can retrieve any data from the
hard drive without passwords needed, then wipe the drive, and reinstall windows again. good luck
I use my TV Wonder 600 USB to watch cable on the pc through the analog Coax port. I haven't heard of one with cable card integration, whats the exact name. I'm sure third party vendors can sell cheaper/more function anything that dell sells, so one must be out there. Check www.newegg.com
