SageTV Media Center For Mac


SageTV continues progress on their multi-platform TV Media Center softtware - now at version 6.5.9 for Mac. I've tried it with one of the Apple Macintosh supported tuners below - specifically Hauppauge's HVR950 non-QAM tuner with an outdoor ATSC antenna with no success pulling in stations. Was a little overwhelmed by the 'Setup Assistant' which is so extensive and lengthy it felt more like a SETUP INTERRIGATOR. And of course it wasn't till I was deep in the process that trying to identify the tuner hardware and actually receive any signal was where it failed. Would have been nice if: 1. The Setup was much more automated, and 2. Recognizing the TV hardware successfully first should preceed attempting subsequent issues like screen aspect ratio, location and program guide info. Will have to de-install, re-install and try again. It OUGHT to work. And it ought to be MUCH simpler to get up and running.
