    "Tried then ALL and this IS THE BEST by far"

    April 20, 2009   |   By JAGWAPATT

    Version: SageTV 6.1.9

    Pros

    flexible unlimited tuners- analogue, digital, satelite cable
    auto favourite recording
    once set-up easy to use
    can use extenders to
    flexible player - very robust handles files other players cannot

    handles HD satelite and cable

    Cons

    not idiot proof takes a little time to setup although once setup it is easy to use every day
    won't do radio
    no fast forward just jump/skip forward
    screen doesn't look as good as vista media center video playback is just as good though

    Summary

    If you like the tivo/ dvr /sky+ way of watching television and only record the occassional tele program some of the other software epsecially the free stuff is probably OK - however if you enjoy your television If you want more than 2 two tuners in europe or 4 tuners in USA this is the only realistic option - it's not constrained like other software so you can get your television how you want it. It should definately be on your short list of vidoe software to try

    "The Best I Found"

    August 06, 2007

    Version: SageTV 6.1.9

    Pros

    This has replaced my TiVo with a fully upgradeable server-based media system. In addition to the PVR functionality I can watch my backed-up DVDs from a library on a HDD. Add new clients and I use multiple computer/TVs to watch the same content from other locations another room or another city! The setup isn't plug-and-play, but it's a lot easier than others I tried (like MythTv). It's also the only solution I know of that comes in Windows, Linux, and Mac. I'm very pleased (v6.x).

    Cons

    The default interface is a bit to complex and ugly, but it's upgradeable. I like the SageMC replacement which adds a nice look and a lot of the add-ons that the active user community has provided. You can also make your own using SageStudio.
