A couple questions

Does the screen shots(menus, general layout) of the SageTV HD theater look the same as SageTV software? Ive looked for screen shots to get a idea of how it looks before buying one, but havent found any.

Can the SageTV HD Theater be bought in a store, or are they only available from the website?


Can the SageTV HD play internet tv stations ?




Thanks

The main menu of the HD200 standalone interface is different, but the submenus pretty much look like the regular SageTV interface, except that the available menus are a subset since things like TV recording control don't exist in standalone mode. The full menu is available when connected as an extender to a SageTV server.

The HD200 is available from the SageTV store.

Can you give an example or two of the internet TV stations you have in mind?

The HD200 connects to numerous online video sources and there are threads here that indicate some pay to view services are supported (i.e. Playon) via UPnP (this requires a PC on the local network).

The HD200 does not currently have a general purpose internet browser so you can't easily enter random URLs.

I believe the HD200 and a SageTV server are quite a powerful combination. A large number of user community enhancements are available for the server.

Ok i should have been more specific....let me explain what it is that i want to do.
Mainly i want to use the SageTV HD to play my huge collection of mp3's , i saw this could be done with sageTV software, and i loved the look and feel of the software. I need to know if the SageTV HD has the same look and feel as the software when it comes to MP3 playback. I may watch the odd video, but its main use will be for music

As an example...there is a prog called TVuPlayer.......you click on CBC and you can watch it online. There are many internet TV stations, like there are radio stations. I was wondering if the sagetv could play these stations.
