We *finally* just got a prototype one of these at work today:


Via C3 at 733MHz, 256MB of RAM, 80GB hard drive, DVI, Component, SVideo 
and Composite video out, digital coax and optical audio outs, as well 
as stereo out. And the kicker -- dual onboard *cable* HDTV tuners. The 
box itself runs a Red Hat Linux 7.3-derived OS. In the brief time I've 
had to play with it, I can say this: WOW, this thing rocks! More time 
to play tomorrow...
