"Sage" at CES?

I know Sage is officially no more, but are any of the original Sage crew at CES showing off what they're doing in GoogleTV this year? Anyone heard anything?

Hopeful: Google & Sage TV CES Announcement?

I don't suppose anybody is at CES, managed to run into Jeff and discover something cool like the announcement of a new Google TV server with "Sage inside" along with support for existing Sage equipment as well as an announcement around a bunch of new compatable extenders/TVs with built in extenders.

Just trying my hand at being the optimist.

You put the words right into my mouth; I have been wondering the same thing myself. I've been following CES on TheVerge.com but have not seen any major Google/SageTV announcements yet.

It takes a lot of time to wade through engadget.com during the CES show, so I'm subscribing here. If anyone spots a suitable Sage substitute, please post here!

Interview with Rishi Chandler of Google TV. Video.
He is asked about SageTV at about 12 minutes in to interview. His response is that they basically see DVR's as old technology and that the future is more of a streaming model.

GoogleTV is looking pretty damn good. Once they're able to offer most of my favorite TV shows at their original air dates, Id would gladly switch. Hopefully, sageTV's premium TV guide will stick around long enough for a seamless upgrade.

Yeah,. I'm just not seeing how I would use any of those features... especially paying $2 to watch a rerun episode of something...

I never understood the $2 per episode, new or old, pricing. $0.99 a song has some merit, since it's something you'll add to a collection and listen to multiple times. But how many here watch a show more than once?

Yes I'd been following that thread, but not closely enough. I missed anything about Google's announcements regarding their plans for leveraging their SageTV purchase.

Google never formally announced anything along those lines (and I don't ever recall them doing anything like that for their other purchases though one could make some educated guesses based on subsequent product/service rollouts).

If that's what you're waiting for I suspect you'll be waiting a very long time

SageTV is the major back-end for Google Fiber's TV service (running v8.0.29.3 on the launch date, specifically). No official word has been given about if/when standalone version of Sage8 will be available. So really, if you need that - you'll have to move to Missouri.
