Snappy updates HAVA software, adds 1080i and 720p support
Snappy's HAVA is a bit of a dark horse in the remote TV viewing world, being overshadowed by Slingbox and all. But nonetheless, it soldiers on, sending your favorite programs out over your home network and then out over the great series of tubes. However, that little box just got a nice upgrade -- on Monday, Snappy Multimedia released a software update for the HAVA, version 1.6. This version will support 1080i, 720p, and 480p/576p inputs, and supports 16:9 aspect ratio for HD content. Further, the HAVA will now automatically detect the input resolution and adjust accordingly. Among the issues that this new software fixes is resolving incorrect video scaling and the ever-annoying "wireless configuration problems." We're constantly annoyed by our own "various problems" with our WiFi routers, so if Snappy wanted to share their insight with Netgear / Linksys / D-Link, we'd be much obliged.
