SageTV Media Center software available for Linux
Frey Technologies, LLC, is expanding its SageTV Media Center software to the Linux operating system, providing a platform for OEMs building media center products. SageTV Media Center was previously available exclusively on the Windows platform.

This edition includes a customization and development environment that enables OEMs to create a wide variety of custom-branded media center, set-top, and broadband video on demand products at attractive price points. SageTV Media Center was previously available exclusively on the Windows platform.

The SageTV Media Center includes an integrated program guide plus the ability to pause and rewind live TV, record a whole season of shows, search for favorite shows by name, actor or subject, and record multiple shows at the same time with multiple tuner support. It also offers parental control features, built-in networking enabling live and/or recorded TV and music to stream to any PC on the home network, and intelligent recording of shows of interest based on household viewing habits.

The new Version 3.0 offers a media adapter called SageTV Media Extender. This adapter connects the SageTV software to any TV in the home through the wired or wireless home network, enabling users to access the full functionality of SageTV Media Center from a 10-foot distance with a remote control included in the package. This adapter retails for US$99 per television with no subscription fees, and can be private-labeled by OEMs to be sold as an accessory to their core products.

Any networked PC running the SageTV Client software, or any TV connected with the SageTV Media Extender, can access the SageTV user interface as well as any media available through the software. There is no need to purchase additional digital video recorder boxes to add more recording capability or purchase brand new PCs with Microsoft Media Center Edition to get DVR and media management control.

With the SageTV Media Extender, the product also overcomes the limitations of standard cable or satellite digital video recorders that require programs to be watched on the TV they were recorded on, or permit sharing only by purchasing additional set-top boxes that must be searched to find out which show was recorded on which box.

SageTV Media Center Version 3.0 will also be incorporated into a set-top box for purchase by consumers in early 2005.
