Tutorial: How to Convert from BeyondTV to SageTV

Brent over at GeekTonic has a fabulous guide to switching from BeyondTV to SageTV. Changing HTPC programs is always difficult as you have probably spent countless hours tweaking, configuring and setting everything up to your liking, so these steps should help if this is a migration you have been interested in.


Run SageTV as-is for a short while to get acquainted. This step is to be sure your guide is working and you can view live TV and recorded TV. I say this just to keep you from installing a bunch of add-ons before you know the basics are working. After you feel things are working the way you want them to, back everything up. Don’t skip this step please 🙂
