I want to be able to view - fullscreen or in a window - TV from a digital TV tuner (PAL SCART).

It doesn't have to have a tuner on board as my digital set-top box has the tuner built in, just a SCART or 3-phono input and ability to display the images realtime fullscreen or in a window.

I'm looking for good quality - eyetv looks good, but it's only 320 res, anything that's nearer to DVD quality rather than "pretty good VHS" (describing the eyetv in a review I read). It can be PCI or USB/FW.

I'm on 10.2.4 with a G4 DP 867, 768 RAM.

Anyone any suggestions?

:)

That sucks, i have one and it only works half the time, not to mention you dont get any software with it. (and watching tv in imovie doesnt really appeal to me).
