Posted on 19 July 2005 by

Meedio is putting the finishing touches on the long awaited MeedioTV TV/PVR add-on component to their expansive HTPC frontend Meedio Essentials.

From the Meedio announcement:” I am very pleased to let you know that Meedio will be announcing the availability of our much anticipated new software application, Meedio TV, on July 27. Meedio TV will be the single most flexible digital video recorder ever introduced. Built on top of the same award-winning Meedio platform that powers Meedio Essentials, Meedio TV will be available as a standalone application, or as a seamlessly integrated bundle with Meedio Essentials.

Here are just a few of the features:

* FREE integrated Electronic Program Guide (EPG) with listings from Tribune Media Services.
* Support for third-party EPG services based on XMLTV.
* Multi-tuner viewing, timeshifting and recording with conflict detection.
* Search and browse recorded programs by time, channel, keyword, title, cast, or any custom-defined categories. Leverage the full power of the Meedio platform to customize the experience that fits you best.
* Search scheduled broadcasts by time, by channel, by title, by keyword, or by cast and credits.
* Recordings automatically added to the Meedio media library.
* Supports external tuners through composite and S-Video inputs.
* One-time or repeating recordings with repeat detection and prioritization.
* Records in a background process when Meedio is not running.
* Auto-delete recordings, manage hard drive space, and create recording quality profiles.
* On-screen configuration wizard.
* Manages special European channel and frequency assignments.
* When used with Meedio Essentials, provides a seamless and fully customizable interface to digital photos, music, movies, news, weather, games and over 200 application plugins. “

BTW, in case you missed it a new release of Meedio Essentials version 1.33 was released last week (which included the final MeedioTV beta/trial before it’s upcoming final official standalone release).
