Even as Google is planning to bring its Fiber internet and TV service to more areas, it's working on making it better. Dave Zatz points out an FCC listing for what looks like a second generation version of the Fiber TV set-top box. We're still not sure what exactly is inside but the listing mentio

One of the big questions after news broke that Google had acquired SageTV and the store shut down was what would happen to the community, but now at least one bone has been thrown existing users way. GeekTonic points out a post on the official forums with updates that will bring the most recent v

In what may be an interesting development for the future of Google TV, the folks at Mountain View have purchased SageTV. The HTPC software has been doing its media center thing on multiple platforms since 2002, and according to a note on its homepage the developers \"believe our ideas will reach a

The last time we checked in on SageTV the HTPC frontend was just hitting version 7 last spring, but just a few days ago it upgraded to a new public beta, version 7.1.7. It's had a slew of fixes and tweaks over the last few months and GeekTonic points out some of them including Channel Logos provide

It wasn't that long ago that recording HD from just about any source on a PC was cost prohibitive. Then along came Hauppauge's HD PVR and while it isn't without its issues and limitations, it gets the job done at an affordable price. One of those limitations is the rather large external enclosure a

With 2010 quickly winding down, we figure most of you have switched from simply watching whatever's on TV to your own choice of recorded shows by now, but we're wondering how you do it. Do you keep it simple and take the box offered by your cable/satellite/IPTV provider, have you upgraded to a thir

We're big fans of HTPCs around here, but admit that when it comes to 10-foot user interfaces that we're pretty superficial. It isn't that we always believe in form over function, not at all. It is just that we're willing to sacrifice a some features for a little eye candy and overall usability. Thi

With the main obstacles for adoption of CableCARD tuners in Home Theater PCs gone it just makes sense that even those who don't use Windows Media Center would want to get in on the fun. If only it was that simple, with CableLabs holding the keys to the kingdom, not just anyone can build software th

Fans of SageTV will love this one -- out now in the latest beta release of the software is HD Theater streamer playback of ripped Blu-ray discs. There's no support for the interactive features, but based on what we've seen from BD-Live so far, you won't be missing much; what you are able to do is

When we first heard about the new SageTV HD Theater, we thought it was just a smaller version of the HD100, but boy we're we wrong. The reason is simple, the new HD Theater from SageTV does everything we loved about the HD100 -- like extending HD from SageTV DVR software to any TV in the house -- b

After seeing a few pictures of the Hulu access on the SageTV HD Theater, we wanted to go by and check it out for ourselves, and while we were there we took a quick video -- sorry it isn't in HD. Overall we liked the interface, and although we've given SageTV a hard time about the lack of richness i

Although most of us didn't think Hulu stood a chance, it has not only proven us wrong in a big way, but now it's the hottest online source for video, featuring some of the best shows on television. The problem of course is that despite what some may tell you, most people want to enjoy their TV show

Ah, so this is a yearly treat? Almost a year to the day after SageTV's STX-HD100 HD Media Extender was revealed, in flies the unit's proper successor. The simply named HD Theater (or HD200, if you prefer), is launching for the same $199.95 and sports a slightly smaller footprint, the same remote as

Lots of HTPC fans have been salivating over the promise of the Hauppauge HD PVR. That pesky \"analog hole\" looks like it might be the best solution for our imperfect tech world. Without integrated Windows MCE support yet, the race is on to deliver some PVR software that's step above the bundled apps
