Watching TV online and listening to radio stations that broadcast via the Internet are surely among the activities often performed by many users worldwide. Since the demand for such services and for applications that support them is not at all negligible, many utilities have been designed to serve this purpose.
MyTheatre is one such software that will enable you to perform a wide variety of tasks, ranging from simple TV, radio or file playback to recording, including the time shift feature that can pause the live video and resume it later, without missing anything.
Supported DVB cards and use a program guide
The program supports a large number of DVB cards and common interfaces, not to mention the integrated remote control capabilities. Thus, with MyTheatre you can connect and use satellite (DVB-S), cable (DVB-C), terrestrial (DVB-T) as well as terrestrial/cable (ATSC) cards.
The range of multimedia files that can be handled by this utility is impressive and this is to be expected from an app that aims to transform your computer into a Home Theatre. The Electronic Program Guide (EPG) as well as the channels are presented in formats that allow their transformation into HTML or even TXT formats for seamless integration with any system.
Add playlists and restrict access to some channels
Subtitles are also supported by MyTheatre, as are wide-screen television sets and video sources. If you have lots of playlists containing your favorite music and videos, you will be glad to find out that you can load and play them if they are saved in one of the following formats: M3U, WPL, LST, TXT.
Just like a modern TV set, MyTheatre can restrict the access to certain selected channels, thus providing you with parental control features.
All in all, the solid feature pack and the impressive array of customizable settings put MyTheatre among the top choices in its category. Remote control management, impressive support for hardware devices and multimedia file types are among the paramount traits that set this software apart from similar solutions.
