Okoro Brings Quad CableCard Support To SX100 HTPC

Okoro Media Systems has been producing pre-fabricated HTPCs for years now, and even as the niche narrows, they're continuing to be one of the go-to places for new living room computers. Now, the company is looking for ways to convince consumers to spring for an HTPC when they wouldn't otherwise, and the newly equipped SX100 is just the thing. It's just 3" tall, which is extremely slim for a full-fledged HTPC. And despite what you may assume, Okoro has managed to equip the machine with some pretty respectable specifications given the small size and limited airflow room.

The 2010 edition SX100 is unique in the fact that it can be ordered with a Quad HD Tuner, which also supports CableCARD. If you have a CableCARD and a quad HD tuner, you can record and/or watch four high-def cable streams at once. All within a system that's 3" tall, too. Other specifications include a stock 2.93GHz Core i3-350 processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 2TB of storage, a Blu-ray player, integrated Intel X4500HD graphics, and 7.1-channel audio output.

The stock configuration is $1695, but it can be customized to your liking if you've got the spare cash.

The quad tuner is pretty sick.... but you CANNOT customize the internal spec whatsoever.

The only customizing you can do is swap out the keyboard, change the OS, and add various cables.

I wonder if that Intel integrated gpu is gonna be powerful enough.

I would like to be able to upgrade that to an nvidia or ati gpu :-\

Still, it's a very nice looking package. I wouldn't complain if someone gave it to me for free :-)

Eh. I'm not surprised. Ceton has released their CableCARD tuner to the masses which allows basically anyone to experience Quad CableCARD without having to buy a new PC.

Still, with the price. I'm sure that anybody will be able to experience it in their own home; as long as they don't care about the performance of the system.

Yea... you could just buy the card and get the features.... but this is such a nice looking package. It's hard to find a nice slim HTPC case that you can fit some good hardware into.
