SageTV 6.5.2 Beta Released

SageTV has another beta release available for download.  This one has several smaller updates and bug fixes but includes several nice behind-the-scenes updates for SageTV users.

Updates include:
  • Multi-threading support for transcoding - nice for those of us using dual or quad-core CPUs on our HTPC server.  This has been possible with one of the user-developed plugins, but now is available in the built-in SageTV transcoding.
  • Several fixes to the EVR support (EVR support was just added in the 6.5.1 release and there are several bug fixes and improvements for those using EVR in this release).
  • Added closed captioning for EVR - a very nice improvement!
There are several other updates that you can check out in the SageTV 6.5.2 Beta release notes.
