equinux has updated its media centre application MediaCentral, and enhanced the integration of its TV software The Tube.

MediaCentral 2.6 ($29.95) offers both timeshift TV and simpler organization of TV-channels in both applications. It also offers stability and usability enhancements.

The software now displays all available information of the current TV show, channel information, and signal strength. The next show is also shown by MediaCentral as soon as a channel is selected.

Available DTT channels that have been scanned and listed in MediaCentral 2.6 can be modified, sorted and even used within The Tube and vice versa. All information will automatically appear in both applications. 

The company has made it simpler to pause and timeshift TV shows using an Apple Remote and a supporting TV tuner device.

In related news, the company is working with Computers Unlimited in order to make its products more easily available at Apple retail stores and those of Apple resellers in the UK, France and Spain.
