Provides the user with a free PVR (Personal Video Recorder). This is the equivalent to a hardware based DVR, like a TIVO or a DVR from the cable company. Only this is free, and it's space is only limited to the hard drive space that you select for it's storage of the video files. You can easily add an extra 2TB USB hard drive to store you TV video files on. This make storage practically unlimited.
Yahoo's lack of further development of the Meedio application. There could be such great possibilities for this software and it's integration with Yahoo information and a User's Yahoo account.
It's good, and I like it, however since Yahoo doesn't develop it any further, I've moved to SageTV.
I don't know anything about it
I don't think I ever asked for this software! Was it installed surreptitiously by some web site? Since I'm not sure what it does, and I'm not sure where it was installed, I don't even know if I ever used it!
This sort of stealth install really scares me. Reputable software should not be allowed to install without at least asking if I want it and explaining what it is/why it's needed.
Did'nt use it , because it was too hard.
Same resons didn't understand it too much.
It looks Good, and i was exited untill, (look bellow)
I do Not like the Fact that you have to register your IP address if it is valid, you have to get a certain card compatible to Yahoo Go TV.
It seems like it has some good features. (I really can't tell because my $400 nVidia Personal Cinema Tuner doesn't work with it:()
It supports 5 diff. cards? thats really not a lot. I mean, there;s programs like InterVideo WinDVR that support hundreds if tuners. I hope when it comes out of beta they get some more compatibility...
This program is perfect for people who don't always want to watch content on their computer screen. You don't need a tuner card in order to use this product (though a tuner card is needed to watch TV). But the organization involved is quite phenominaly done. I'm impressed.
1) No OGM or MKV format support. This is quite disappointing given that more and more people are storing their videos in said formats.
2) Video Streaming could be done better. Even on my fast cable connection, there's still a bunch of stuttering.
3) There's no playlist support. I'm a little disappointed in Yahoo! over this one. While, more than likely, this won't be a problem for most people out there, there's still a significant number of people out there who rely on playlists to keep their music files sorted properly. This group is mostly consisted of people with 80GB+ of mp3s.
You need a TV tuner card? What's that Yahoo! when everything is going digital and IP TV why go back in technology for that. Also it ask me for a real IP and ONLY US, another awfull mistake from Yahoo. So, only for US, then do not allow me to download it, as simple as that. Or, is this discrimination ?

Voicetopia, name one free IP TV network with decent content (ANY?). So why would Yahoo! provide such an expensive service to run for free? Digital TV still needs a TV tuner also. So on what grounds do you think one wouldn't be needed? Wven if it provided streaming internet TV, why on earth would I want the reduced quality and lag? I'll stick to my cheap TV tuner that provides excellent picture. Get a clue.
Just like windows media center edition but with this you can watch music videos off the web.
not compatible with my sony vaio's tv tuner card:(
This is cool. Everything can be accessed from one program. FYI, you do need to have a TV tuner card installed to access the TV programs.
