SHOWSHIFTER TUNES IN RADIO FOR LATEST VERSION

Home Media Networks' Award Winning Software Adds Full Radio Support and Offers Greater Compatibility With TV Tuner Cards Than Ever Before

Home Media Networks Ltd, developer of network -capable home entertainment software, today announced the release of version 3.0 of ShowShifter. The third generation of the company's award -winning home entertainment software includes the ability to schedule, record, and 'time -shift' live FM radio and support for the most popular hardware TV encoder cards on the market.


The radio module, available through the main page interface, allows the user to listen to any of the current 500+ radio stations available, through ShowShifter. Users can enjoy the plethora of functionality ShowShifter already offers through its TV module such as the ability to schedule favourite programmes, record, and time -shift live broadcasts.

"A radio module was the last piece in the jigsaw to making ShowShifter an all -encompassing home entertainment solution," explains Home Media Networks CEO, John Croft. "In addition, an integrated DVD player codec, a free integral electronic programme guide (EPG) and support for new hardware MPEG2 encoder cards means ShowShifter v 3.0 really does lead the pack on both functionality and value."

Through supporting the hardware encoder cards, users can record in MPEG -2, producing better quality recordings while requiring less processing power. By adding a DVD player codec as standard with ShowShifter v 3.0, users need not go hunting around for a relevant codec but can sit back and enjoy the industry leading functionality of ShowShifter coupled with NVIDIA's codec to deliver uncompromising DVD and high -definition video quality on the latest widescreen flat panel displays and high -resolution televisions.

Home Media Networks' award -winning home entertainment software, ShowShifter, allows users to watch, record and time -shift (pause) TV, play DVD videos and listen to radio, CDs and MP3 music files all through one interface, providing a unique entertainment experience. The ability to control Showshifter with a remote control and its unique Farview interface enables the consumer to use the product from anywhere in the room, as with conventional home entertainment products.

ShowShifter v 3.0 is available now for $59.95. Evaluation versions of English and international versions of ShowShifter can be downloaded from www.showshifter.com.
