Can you give some more "flavor" on the Channels DVR software. What exactly is it providing (DVR service - duh :D) and how it works? Is it stand alone or can you tie it into SageTV at all?

Well since it's my understanding the SageTV still doesn't work with ATSC 3.0 tuners, we have bigger issues to tackle.
