    None of the Elgato (or Miglia) products are wireless - you need to connect a cable and/or antenna to them. Typically you'd connect a cable to them as you would to a TV. They then connect to your Mac and act as a tuner. The software (eyetv2) allows you to control the device, record shows, schedule recordings, etc.

    Go for it, IMO EyeTV is like one of the top "killer apps" for MacOS that I can think of.

    Really love it :)

    These DTT devices are for use within countries that use the DVB broadcasting system (Europe/Asia). The States, along with Canada, use a system called ATSC therefore these DVB Digital Terrestrial products won’t work. The analogue cable/terrestrial tuners should, however.
