MediaCentral 2.4 released

Equinux today released MediaCentral 2.4, an update to its theater application offering customizable user interface themes, an improved TV Module, and enhanced .Mac integration. MediaCentral is designed to turn a Mac into a home theater system with support for numerous audio, video, TV, and multimedia formats. The new customizable interface themes allow users to personalize the look of MediaCentral by choosing from a list of color schemes or, alternatively, creating a custom scheme. The update simplifies usability via a new Onscreen Display menu included in the TV Module, combining a set of TV feature controls and configuration options such as a concise channel list and additional information about running programs.

The Onscreen Display also offers access to audio settings, including Audiotrack for multi-channel programs or muting and diverse picture settings. The update improves the speed and quality of channel switching, and automatically recognizes untuned TV devices by plugging in a supported DVB-T/DTT device. Version 2.4 also simplifies the one-time channel tuning setup, according to Equinux. MediaCentral 2.4 enhances .Mac Photocast integration, and improves QuickTime implementation resulting in a smoother appearance whenever movies are played in Apple's native format.
