Question ATI's elusive OCUR Cable Card

At the Jan 2006 CES in Las Vegas ATI announced the planned release of the OCUR Cable Card later this year. Among other things, the card will allow you to view and record HDTV on your computer. Well it's "later this year" and I haven't heard a thing about this card or when it may be released. Since you won't be able to buy it off the shelf (you can only buy it with a new PC...I think) and I am waiting for it to be released before I buy a new PC I am wondering if anyone has heard anything as to when this card may be released. If you have any information please post!

Supposedly...I've seen conflicting information but it sounds like you have to buy it pre-equipped on a new computer. See here

From what I found, it is supposed to be shipped 'alongside' Vista.... and we know that Vista isn't released quite yet, so keep on waiting.....
