Just wanted to drop a note and say that running SageTV on FreeBSD using linux compat and avoiding bhyve / docker / etc, seems to work just fine.

I recently separated & moved out. My old SageTV setup was running on what ended up as my ex's computer, so I've setup a SageTV on my desktop, running FreeBSD-current.

Running the 64-bit sagetv for linux depends on installing the linux-c7 compat packages, and linux-oracle-jdk18-8 and setting the path such that sagesettings has the line:
export PATH=/usr/local/linux-oracle-jdk1.8.0/bin:$PATH. Oh, and making a link pointing to /usr/local/bin/bash from /bin/bash since the startup scripts assume bash is in /bin

I'm using an Nvidia shield as my client, and an HDHR as my tuner. I've used USB tuners in the past, but my server is nowhere near my antenna & there is no free coax in this place, so an HDHR it is.
Server HW: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core
Server SW: FreeBSD-current, ZFS, linux-oracle-jdk1.8.0, sagetv-server_9.2.2_amd64
Tuner HW: HDHR
Client: Nvidia Shield (HD300, HD100 in storage)
