SageTV headed for Max OS X

Despite the immense amount of shiny going on in Apple's own Front Row media app, the feature set falls woefully short of a full-blown Media Center killer for the Mac. Now it looks like the SageTV peeps are going to pick up the slack and port their well-loved media app to Mac OS X. Their latest edition of the software, SageTV V5 -- which is already available for Windows and Linux -- includes support for SageTV Placeshifter on Windows, so hopefully SageTV finds time to squeeze that into the Mac edition so Apple users can finally get down with their TV-on-the-go selves. Right now SageTV is seeking out beta testers for a closed beta that should take place in the next few weeks, so it doesn't look like the Mac heads among us will have too terribly long to wait.
