Home Media Networks` Next Generation Home Entertainment Software Includes Weekly TV Data

Home Media Networks Ltd, Europe's leading developer of media center software, today announces the release of ShowShifter 3.10, the latest version of its popular home entertainment software that replaces the TV, VCR, DVD and CD player in the home.


One of the highlights of the latest version is ShowGuide, which has been comprehensively updated and enhanced with new features. ShowShifter's ShowGuide is automatically populated with data retrieved either direct through the DVB signal or via the Internet, and shows up to seven days worth of upcoming programming.

Other updates to ShowShifter 3.10 include a simplified front end interface, an improved MPEG2 writer to produce a more DVD -compliant stream, an in -built MPEG Demux to aid viewing quality and the support of the BDA DVB cable and satellite standards.

Now boasting over 700,000 users worldwide, ShowShifter allows users to watch, record and time -shift (pause) TV, play DVDs, CDs and MP3 music files all through one interface. 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 with a simple, unified interface for all home entertainment components (DVR, DVD, CD, etc), as with conventional home entertainment products.

"Other PVR products have come and gone, but ShowShifter remains the leader in its class thanks to regular improvements to ensure that our customers get the best entertainment experience that technology allows," explained Home Media Networks CEO John Croft. "This release couples new techniques, such as BDA support and in -built Demux, with the EPG functionality requested by our user base."
