Any compelling Reason to upgrade to V6?

I have a very stable V5 install. Running SageMCE / Webserver / Commskip 2 HD Tuners. Quite happy, is there any compelling reason to upgrade to V6?

More Bling?

I'm tempted, but, 'If ain't broke....'

I suppose I'd say don't go looking for trouble

Off the top of my head, some extender improvements were the big thing, also a rework of the imported media area in the Stock STV (doesn't affect you using SageMC).

For you, probably the biggest thing is most STV developers move on to the newest version so newer versions of SageMC probably won't work on V5.

Umm... the Media Center portion doesn't suck nearly as bad as it used to? The V6 clients seem to be more stable than V5, and PlaceShifter is vastly improved.

Built in transcoding was a biggie for me.

Google video!!!! ... hehehe j/k, thats no reason to upgrade anything.

The reason I upgraded, is its a bigger number than 5

But honestly, if you are not seeing a really good feature you gotta have... don't fix what aint broke, right?

If you just use Sage to record and watch HDTV, and everything's working fine, there's no reason to upgrade. There are no changes to the program in that area (if everything's working fine).

For me, FSE never worked in Ver 5 (well, it did work in every other beta, but not nearly as well as it does in 6, and it didn't work at all in the final of V5). Since I had a 6600GT, with tearing, that was a good reason to upgrade.
