Technomate TM-500 Linux Super

Designed for the enthusiast, the TM-500 Super runs an open source Linux firmware which Third Party Developers can develop upon making available a plethora of applications, plug-ins, channel lists...and more.

With the piano black finish TM-500 Super, Technomate has developed a web interface program from which you can stream to your PC via the Ethernet port, control your TM-500 Super from your PC, FTP files across, send messages to your TV screen, see what's available with the 7-day EPG guide…and more.

Thanks to its large flash memory, the TM-500 Super has an unlimited channel memory therefore you will never run out of space to store your TV & Radio channels.

The satellite tuner's hardware is super sensitive to pick up weak signals and weak transponders and the software drivers have been configured to give you the most optimum signal.

The TV Scart output is not your standard CVB-S, it's a high quality RGB output to give you vibrant and realistic TV pictures. Furthermore, we have gone one step further and developed quality unheard of in Scart outputs...Component YPbPr quality. With a Scart-Component cable, the best picture quality has become even better.

To watch the same channel on another TV, there’s an RF modulator at the rear of the satellite receiver, so you can watch all your channels in your bedroom (requires a cable to be connected from the RF modulator to the second TV).
