    Hi. I am thinking of getting an Elgato product to go with my ordered MacBook, and have found the EyeTV Hybrid. A few questions about it: can I connect it to the normal tv ports in houses in the UK? And I have Sky Digital at my house. With this, I can pick up what channel is on the Sky box via any TV port in the house with a normal TV. Will I be able to do this with EyeTV Hybrid? Thanks!!!

    Don't know about Sky ( haven't got it ), but it will work connected to a normal TV port. It works very well with a MacBook, especially the Front Row integration.

    I've got Sky connected via composite and it works great with my EyeTV Hybrid. The quality is crystal clear when in a window and looks better than it did on my tv. Full screen it doesn't look so good simply because I'm stretching a low res PAL signal to a 2560x1600 resolution. From a distance it looks great though.
