Snapstream has released version 3.4.4 of BeyondTV, its TiVo-like software for the PC. This new version, they say, improves image quality by adding support for video card overlay capabilities. This change should allow the GPU to handle image scaling, producing better results with less CPU overhead. The full release notes are here.
Also, SnapStream has decided to allow those who have given BeyondTV a trial in the past to have another go at a 30-day trial period. If you're interested in this kind of product, I suggest grabbing it. Our review of an older version is right here.
On the downside, version 3.4.4 loses the built-in DivX codec. SnapStream pledges to "soon release a plug-in for users who wish to recompress Beyond TV recordings into the DivX format."
