  Those familiar with SageTV know that one of its major strengths is an consumer electroincs (CE) style extender, the STP-HD200, which really extends the entire experience – supporting everything from DVDs with menu support, to BDMV (Blu-ray folders) and MKV with PGS (aka Blu-ray) subtitles.  The STP-HD200 was not perfect however, especially for those who use standby on the […]

EHD on NVIDIA 3DTV Play and PowerDVD 3D

I wonder what the value add is for that $40.  Side-by-side and top-bottom 3D content already play just fine an HTPC (tested personally :)) you just need to tell the TV what kind of content it is.  The only thing that doesn’t work is 3D BD which requires an HDMI 1.4 driver – which I think is supposed to be […]

SageTV Licenses PlayReady

I’m not that familar with what the different types of PlayReady licenses mean, but it looks like SageTV now has a PlayReady Master Agreement Licensee.  With names like Netflix and SiliconDust also on the list hopefully it’s a precursor to good things to come.

MKV Header Compression Issues

I’m not sure how I feel about header optimization when it’s a breaking change.  Seems like the kind of thing that you don’t change the spec on mid stream, but maybe that’s just me.    A few weeks ago I updated to the latest mkvtoolnix, which I believe is currently at v4.2.0.

ShowAnalyzer Settings Explained

While I love ShowAnalyzer, I have to admit being a little intimidated by all of the settings with obtuse names available for creating custom scanning profiles.  Now thanks to Ben, we can all tune like pros.   If you you’ve ever used any automatic commercial skipping technolog you know that it isn’t 100 percent accurate.
