KOCH Media just announced the signing of an exclusive deal with Home Media Networks, developer of the highly successful ShowShifter home media centre. Compatible with the vast majority of TV tuner cards on the market, once installed, ShowShifter turns your PC into the ultimate home media centre. ShowShifter is jam packed with features to enhance the users viewing pleasure. Pause live television broadcasts using ShowShifter. When paused, the software records the continuing program to your PC. While you watch the resumed show, ShowShifter enables your computer to record ahead while you watch.

The digital video recorder allows you to record TV just like you would on your VCR; by setting-up a pre-determined time and channel using program listings from an Electronic Program Guide (EPG). ShowShifter™ can be fully integrated with two pan-European EPGs, TVTV.co.uk and DigiGuide.com. The recorded program goes straight to your hard disk to be replayed time and time again, when and where you want. Never miss your favourite show again.

Use your PC as an advanced multi media system. Shuffle through your entire music collection, play CD's, MP3's or any other audio file while watching on-screen visualisations that reacts to the beat of the music. ShowShifter™ will also manage your DVD movie playback (hardware and decoder software required).

Using the 'FarView' user interface, ShowShifter™ can be controlled at a distance, from the comfort of your armchair, managing all of your entertainment needs via one intuitive software program.
