Question Additional Online Content on HD200

Hi,

I have a HD200 and I am planning to buy 2 additional ones and I was wondering if is planned to have a firmware version for HD200 that allow more online content like WD TV Live from Western Digital ($ 149) that offers Pandora, Flickr and Live365.com. ?

I would like to have it like the WD product in stand alone / media player mode, I don't like the solutions that we have available today SlimPlayer 2.0 and Web Radio and TV Encoder that only works in media extender mode and also need to install additional software on it like Squeebox or VLC, this solution works but is not pratical and simple as if you have it in Stand Alone mode / Media Player mode.

- Is the plan of SageTV to enhance HD200 in Media Player mode ?
- Is this kind of feature feasible in HD200 ?
- If yes, Is this kind of feature planned to be developed ?
- If yes, How long are we to have it available ?

Somedoby from Sage can make any comment on it ?

Thanks in advance,

Regards

Sérgio

Bellow answer from SageTV Support
Unfortunatelly, I think if I want to have this solution soon I'll have to buy the WD HD Live that offer more online content option, mainly web radios that what I am looking for, in addition WD HD live also offer DTS downmix.
Anyway I think these 2 features is good for all colleagues that has HD200 not only for me. If Sage do not want to offer additional features in HD200 this good product will be focused only for SageTV users with the requirement of additional extender licenses, In another hand I believe the future will be to use this kind of product more in a Media Player / Stand Alone mode with seamless integration with NAS via UPnP/DLNA.

Sergio,

Unfortunately at this time I don't know if/when we will have those options
available on the HD200.

Thanks,
