  1. More apps?

    Okay, I noticed that when it comes to apps and widgets, Mediaroom can create some pretty wicked experiences. Yet, SaskTel seems to be keeping things rather plain;pretty much the only new "app" we've had lately is the MySask411 one. Do you think maybe they need more actual experiences to show...

    Home Theatre Personal Computer & Media Extenders
    I'll start this post by saying I'm slightly annoyed by this, if my assumption is correct. I use Vista Media Center and XBOX360 extenders (rather than pay my provider (Sasktel) $10 a month for PVR service). The other night, my Media Center recorded an episode of "House". I have a bunch of...

  7. Mediaroom Future Upgrades - What do you hope for and expect?

    Telus IPTV (also known as Optik TV)
    I've had Mediaroom for a week now with 1 PVR and 2 regular boxes. I think the system is great; the PVR software is much better than what is available with Shaw, the menu and guide system is excellent and the size of the boxes is much nicer as well. I also really like the remote a lot more than...
