Snapstream PVS updated, renamed


— 1:29 PM on December 24, 2003

Snapstream's TiVo-like software, which we reviewed recently, has been updated to version 3.4.1 and given a new name: Beyond TV. The new version includes a number of features Andy wished for in our review, including a on-screen program guide during live TV. From the release notes, the changes include:

  • Beyond TV name change!
  • Canadian program guide support
  • Mouse support
  • SmartSkip™
  • Search program guide (in the ViewScape interface)
  • On-screen program guide while watching TV
  • New conflict resolution screen
  • Smaller OSD for trackbar (while pausing, rewinding, etc.)
  • Settings screens (in the ViewScape interface)
  • 'New' indicator (in the ViewScape Video Library)
  • Better 16x9 Support -- stretching for PAL users
  • WMV Recompress 2-Pass
  • IR Blaster Code Database for the USB-UIRT and Actisys IR-200L
  • Screensaver feature (dims screen after certain idle time)
  • Not a bad Christmas present for those of us with Snapstream-based HTPCs. You can download the update here.
    Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
