Miglia Technology today released a free software update for its digital video recorder, EvolutionTV. Version 2.6 includes video iPod and Sony PSP real-time compression, which negates the need to go through a lengthy software export step. The software allows users to watch and record TV on a Mac, while offering iPod, PSP, MPEG-2/4 and DivX hardware compression. EvolutionTV comes with software enabling users to watch live TV, pause, rewind, and skip forward. Additionally, the device can store hours of TV programs on a single DVD for playback. "Many users submitted suggestions that were implemented in the final release, like an iTunes integration plug-in, which adds your iPod files automatically to Apple's iTunes 6," said Eric Ferraz, vice president of product development for Miglia. EvolutionTV is available for $250 and requires a PowerPC G4 1GHz processor or better, as well as Mac OS X 10.4.x or later.
