Taking the web site down is a strange action for a company that wants to continue a product. I hope Google continues to develop SageTV. OTOH, Google may see SageTV as a low profit product with good technology. Google can afford to simply gut Sage of its technology and kill the SageTV product in order to improve it's own position in that marketplace. I've seen similar things happen several times, including companies I've worked at.
It's no secret that big business, studios especially, want PVRs killed off so they can make more money on renting or streaming video. Companies like SageTV are an easy target for takeover in order to help achieve that goal.
