Short Bits: Big Screen Weather, Omaura, SageTV
I’ve just finished up my finals for this semester (finally),
so in the next week I hope to have some new posts. I’ve got a Dell XPS 420 Q&A type post for
everyone who is considering purchasing one.
What restrictions CableCARD has, what you change in the PC, how to make recommendations
to Dell, and a whole lot more.
Niall posted a preview of Big
Screen Weather 2 a few days ago. The
big news is that it will support global weather, not just Aussie weather. The UI looks great, and I look forward to
having a nice MCML weather application. (Via
Missing Remote posted a preview of Omaura’s
wall hanging HTPC concept. I have to
say that while I’m not a big fan of the PC itself in the living room, I’d put
any one of the Omaura cases in their without a thought.
SageTV Extenders have started to ship, Brent
Evan’s has one of the first reviews out now. I’ll have more to say about these later, but
between them supporting tons of formats (including VIDEO_TS) and the low
hardware price point, Sage is taking a lot of Media Center users with this
release (really, go look at the forms, I’ve seen tons of familiar names). Once again, great job SageTV!
