Brad's favorite apps worth paying for: BeyondTV

Over the past week we've been bringing you some of our favorite applications of all time. And most of them have been free. I love freeware and open source software. In fact, almost every application I run on my Windows, Windows Mobile, and Linux devices didn't cost me a penny. But I decided to do something a bit different for my favorite apps posts. I want to highlight some of the applications...

SnapStream adds placeshifting to BeyondTV PVR software

SnapStream Media's BeyondTV application for Windows is one of a handful of applications that should make anyone think twice about purchasing a TiVo or cable company DVR. Like Windows Media Center, SageTV, and MythTV for Linux, BeyondTV lets users record and pause live TV on a PC and do a whole bunch of other things like shrink videos using DiVX or Windows media compression. But one thing that...

TiVo and Nero developing DVR software for the PC

TiVo, the company that has become pretty much synonymous with the idea of the digital video recorder plans to create a PC version of the software it uses on set top boxes. The company is partnering with Nero to develop the software. Up until recently, TiVo's Linux-based software was designed to run only on TiVo-branded boxes. But over the past year TiVo has been partnering with cable companies...

Free PVR software users to pay for TV guide data

Come September, Zap2it Labs will no longer offer the free TV guide data used by PC-based personal video recording software like MythTV, Media Portal, and GB-PVR. Well, there's good news and bad news for anyone using those programs. There are at least two groups, CTpvr and Schedules Direct (formerly known as Easy TV Data) planning to pick up where Zap2it leaves off next month. And it looks like...

Watch Joost on your TV with a remote control

Now that internet TV platform Joost is actually signing deals to get content you might actually want to watch from CBS, MTV, Comedy Central and other networks, you might be wondering how to watch Joost on your TV set. While Joost really does make watching online videos a bit more like watching TV and a bit less like surfing the web, you still pretty much need to use a keyboard to navigate. And...

Couchville does TV listings right

Snapstream Media, the company behind the PVR software BeyondTV, has launched a new TV listing website called Couchville. It's not as flashy as some other Web 2.0 TV guides like MeeVee, but what Couchville does, it does very well. The main thing that sets Couchville apart from other sites like TVGuide.com or Zap2it is that it has a web 2.0, AJAX feel to it. Instead of clicking on a "next page"...

BeyondTV 4.5 adds integrated DVD burning

SnapStream Media releases version 4.5 of its personal video recorder, BeyondTV today. 4.5 is a dot release, and doesn't feature any spectacular changes. Version 4.0 for example, added support for HDTV and DivX. But there is one major new feature. For $30, SnapStream is selling a DVD burning plugin that integrates directly into the BeyondTV interface. Now, when you record a show, you can choose...

SnapStream Beyond TV 4.0 Review

Product Description SnapStream's Beyond TV product is a Windows-based Personal Video Recorder (PVR) similar to TiVo or Microsoft's Media Center PC television functionality. It allows you to take any Windows PC (that meets the hardware requirements) and use it to pause and rewind live television, as well as schedule shows to be recorded based on a number of different schedules. The Beyond TV...

Beyond TV 4.0

I’ve been a SnapStream customer since before their product was called Beyond TV, and rarely have I gone through an upgrade to such a complicated and historically finicky piece of software that was as painless as the upgrade to version 4.0 was this time around. It made me not mind that I had to pay for the upgrade. Beyond TV is a Windows-based PVR (Personal Video Recorder) software...
