Equinux has released The Tube 1.5, the latest version of its TV software for the Mac.

The new version offers timed recordings, enhanced Apple Script support, an improved TV-Guide (EPG) and new community features. This is the release version of beta software from the company that has been in circulation for four weeks.

Community features include the ability for users to send other users of The Tube a 'TV Tip', from a currently running show, the EPG or the timed recordings schedule.

The Tube 1.5 also supports manual start and end times, as well as a custom buffers before and after the scheduled show times.

The Tube 1.5 will display all available EPG data from the DVB-T data-stream in list view and can also display details about individual shows. Users can also initiate a Google search on a TV show from the contextual menu.
