Happy Anniversary Everyone

Well, here we are. One year in. Frankly a year ago I thought I would know a lot more about the future of Sage and its progeny right now than I actually do but I am still hopeful for a Sage-esque solution (from someone, anyone) in the near future. Congrats to everyone who is still hanging around. Hopefully the second year anniversary will bring with it some new innovations on the HTPC front.

On a brighter note, all kinds of other GOOD things have happened for me in the "real world" in the past year, so overall I can't complain. See you next year!

With apologies to Don McLean:

Quote:
A long long time ago
I can still remember how
That software used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people glance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
But June 18 made me sweat
When I read the forums with regret
Bad news on the front page
Was this really the end Sage

I can't remember if I cried
When I read the contents of his slide
But something touched me deep inside
**The day the SageTV died**
Maybe someone else can come up with the chorus?

In all seriousness, I wonder how long the lockups and non-competes are on Jeff, et al? Probably more than one year but if another year goes by and still nothing comes of the Google purchase of Sage then I wonder if he/they will still be with GOOG? Or maybe they will be free to leave and start Frey Technologies 2.0?

Or maybe they just moved on, or will stay to collect a real nice paycheck and write there own personal DVR ...

So far what GOOG is doing is not looking good for us, I think.

Isn't it customary to give gifts on the one year anniversary? A nice gift would be for Sage to sell off any remaining inventory of HD300's, as-is of course. Another nice gift would be commit to extending the EPG by another year or two. I'm sure I could think of a few more gifts, given the time...

None of them are under warranty anymore so they don't have to be considered about keeping a few on hand as warranty replacements.

My last HD300 arrived a year ago last week. I suspect it was one of the last ones shipped.

After a year of SageTV frozen, still, nothing comes close to it! I wonder how many years it will take for something better to come along. Both Apple and Google seem to be interested in coming out with something, but both seem to be failing and treading water, golng nowhere.

It just might take another 5, 10, or more years for something to come out that is better than SageTV.

Actually I think it will just take that 5 - 10 years to convince the last of us to switch to something inferior because Windows10+ isn't compatible and the new hardware doesn't work with earlier versions and isn't useable by SageTV.

I don't see any reason to switch from my Windows XP SP3 server to anything else, it is just rock solid stable

I agree but if my recording devices die I will have to get new ones and they may not even have drivers for the older versions of Windows and SageTV may not be compatible with the new versions of Windows or the new cards. Not likely in the near future but 10 years out - maybe. When that starts happening I won't have a choice I will have to look for something then.

Normally non-competes and confidentiality agreements entered into in connection with the sale of a company work 2 ways. First you are locked up for anywhere from 2 to 5 years from the closing of the sale (usually a longer period if you got crazy money - I'm sure Jeff did fine but I doubt it was seriously crazy money).

Then, if you are an employee, you are subject to a confidentiality agreement (and of course you can't compete with your employer) the whole time you are employed - could be years and years - and for a year or so after your employment terminates.

The only way scenario one matters is if you quit the company early on. In that case the first non compete will last longer. If you stay on for a couple or three years, then the second one is the more relevant one.

Bottom line. Don't expect Jeff to star talking against Google's wishes anytime soon!

What a shame

Nothing has ever or will come close to the stability and well designed product such as SageTV. Hope mine never dies.

Jeff sold us all out for the $$$!

I just wish Jeff or google could give us some idea, more than extreme vagueness, that there is something truly usable coming or not within the next year.

Hopefully the Echo will be out in less then 5-10 month's - then MCE will take off again.

I love Sage don't get me wrong, but the lack of support going forward is a real bummer. That means no other HD capture support other then what is available now, and well, enough said I guess...

Sigh. It has been a long, dark year. I should have pulled the trigger on that HD300. Then again, my setup isn't working now and won't work without further support from Sage, which apparently is not coming.

Jeff, I hope it was worth it considering all the sorrow you have caused! Of course it was worth it for him, I'm being silly.

Well as the GooglePlus'ers know, i'm not so secretly hoping GoogSage won't announce a darn thing for at least another 4 months. I'm hitting unheard of levels of offline productivity :-)
