British developer Miglia Technology announced on Wednesday the release of
MovieGate, a free plug-in for
AlchemyTV DVR (Digital Video Recorder) that enables burning VCDs, Super VCDs and DVDs in the DVR application, as well as creating chapter stops for DVDs. The plug-in is based on the DVD mastering utility released by the developers at macetvideo.com. MovieGate converts recorded video to MPEG-2 and supports burning to the DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW and CD-R/W formats.
AlchemyTV DVR is a hardware and software solution that comes with a PCI card that plugs into any Power Mac G4 or G5 and enables you to watch TV in full-screen mode with its Philips tuner. The software allows you to schedule recording of TV programs in a TiVo-like fashion as well as capture video from a VCR. The card offers TV/antenna, composite, S-Video and stereo audio connectors and requires Mac OS X v10.2.4 or higher, a G4 or G5 processor and 256MB RAM.
