SageTV HD Theater Beta Update – WiFi Improvements & USB Keyboard Support

SageTV just does not rest on already being one (if not the) best Extender out there, and continues shooting out feature requests from their customers. First came support for 802.11n last week, and this week brings even more features for Extender users.


With the latest beta firmware “20090814 1” we now have basic support for USB keyboards. I’ve tried two different wireless USB keyboards and one wired USB keyboard all of which just worked – no setting changes or anything else required. Note this is currently only in extender mode and not media player (standalone) mode yet. But it’s an often mentioned missing feature that will be welcomed by many a SageTV user.
