The Tube 2.6 gets new EPG engine

updated 03:55 pm EDT, Thu April 10, 2008

The Tube

equinux has released The Tube 2.6 with a completely reengineered EPG engine. Users can now choose between different electronic program guide (EPG) plug-ins and automatically update TV information even when they're imported from alternative EPGs in the XMLTV format. The Tube 2.6 automatically updates the electronic program guide (EPG) twice a day and therefore always provides users with the latest TV listings. To open the application to third-party providers of TV listings, The Tube now has a new plug-in structure to allow users to choose between different television guides. The Tube was the first Mac application to add support for the open XMLTV standard for TV listings. The Tube 2.6 can also handle automatic XMLTV-updates in the same way as it automatically updates TV listings via DTT (DVB-T).

The Tube 2.6 is free for every registered The Tube user via the integrated update feature and the equinux website. equinux ships The Tube with its TV receiver TubeStick for DTT (DVB-T).
