After a successful 4 week public beta, The Tube 1.5. is ready. Thanks to your great feedback and suggestions we’ve made a few additional improvements and now all registered users can enjoy scheduled recordings and a free electronic program guide with The Tube.
We’ve also added a few new features to this release version that weren’t available in the public beta:
- TV Tip:
Users can now also send other users of The Tube a ‘TV Tip’. TV Tips can be sent from a currently running show, the EPG or the timed recordings schedule.
- Extended Applescript support:
You can now access the scheduled recording features of The Tube via Applescript, making it even easier to add The Tube support to your own applications and widgets.
- Visual scheduling feedback:
The Tube will now subtly indicate which programs can’t be scheduled for recording, if they conflict with a recording scheduled earlier.
- Support for custom EPGs in the XMLTV format:
The Tube 1.5 will display all available EPG data from the DVB-T data-stream in a convenient list view and can also display details about individual shows. Users who would like to find pictures or further information about a show can start a Google search from the context menu. The EPG data received via DVB-T can be supplemented or replaced by user-specified EPG data in XMLTV format.
You will be automatically prompted to update to the release version of The Tube 1.5 the next time you start the application. This update is free to all registered users of The Tube.
