New to Sage (on 15 day trial) - Extender Question

I just decided to check out Sage TV, Ive been using MCE for a few years now and wanted to try something not so..."microsoft".

If I setup Sage to my tastes by installing add ons like SageMC and other things like Comercial skip and NetFlix add on will all these transfer to any media extenders I purchase.

Ideally I would like to purchas two or three Sage Extenders but I would want all the options on those exteners like I put on the server, does it work like this? If I change the UI on the server does the extender get that UI or is it just a canned static UI you get with the extenders.

As you change the imports / plug ins on the server, you will be creating "versions" of the STV. So, if you have a base STV, and then add 1 import you may have an STV 3 and an STV 31 (I haven't figured out the numbering system, but you can see they are sequential) Anyway, you can define which of these STV's you want on the extender...Thus, they can be the same as the main server or different...You could even have the extender with more plugins if you wanted...It really works very easily. I usually get my server "right" and then set my extender to the final result after I have imported all the plugins/ customizations that I want. So, its not automatic, you just define on the extender which version of the STV you want...(very easy)

Now having said all of this...Make sure you read through the forum about coming "HD" extenders. In case you need to wait for the HD version.

Hope this helps...
