SageTV HD200 Media Player Unboxed

Brent, soon to nick named Mr Sage, has gotten his grubby paws on the HD 200 and performs the obligaotry unboxing. He also gives his first impressions of the HD Theater and SageTV’s second extender revision appears to be a winner.


  • This thing is small and lightweight.  It is much closer to the size
    of of a Hauppauge HD-PVR (but not as "tall") than it is to the SageTV
    HD100 Extender.  It won’t work under a Blu-Ray player, but it is small
    enough to put next to one or on top of one in your Entertainment System.
  • It’s fast.  Navigating the User Interface on the HD200 is close to
    the speed on my Quad-core PC for animations and rendering.  Obviously
    the processor on the HD200 isn’t my quad-core, but it’s definitely
    faster than my HD100 extender.  Some of that may have to do with the
    additional memory as well.
