Technomate TM-600 USB PVR Linux

Technomate TM-600 Linux Open Source digital satellite receiver.


  • Open Source Linux
  • 3x USB 2.0 Ports
  • Component (YPbPr) Output
  • 1x Card Reader
  • Ethernet Port & RF Modulator
  • Unlimited Channel Memory

Designed for the enthusiast, the TM-600 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-600, we have developed a web interface program from which you can stream to your PC via the Ethernet port, control your TM-600 from your PC, FTP files across, send messages to your TV screen, see what's available with the 7-day EPG guide…and more.

Even though the TM-600 is aggressively priced for its feature-set, we have designed it has a high-end satellite receiver with high quality components and features which many satellite receivers in this price range do not have.

There are 3x USB 2.0 ports (front, internal & rear) which allow you to connect a USB-powered Hard Drive to record/play programmes and also to download software.

Thanks to its large flash memory, the TM-600 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.

There’s also a component (YPbPr) output which upscales the picture of the channel to give you a better picture than RGB. The best picture quality has become even better. This is as close as you can get to HD quality on a non-HD channel.

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).
