    I'm wondering if anyone knows if there's an HDTV tuner available for Macintosh. I know there's a couple windows HDTV tuners, and I'm wondering if something similar is available for Mac. I love my eyeTV, but I'd also love Hi-Def. Anybody able to help me?

    I found a thread that's somewhat helpful. If you still have any ideas, you can help me out.

    Care to share the info you found elsewhere? I'd be interested as well. Especially if it tunes both OTA and QAM.

    Currently I have a Moto6200 cable box. With the recent firmware upgrades, the firewire ports have come to life. Using the guide from MacOSXhints, my Mac is a nice little HD recorder. Unfortunately, my HDTV does not have a firewire input. It has DVI, but I have been unable to get a stable image to it from my Tibook using custom resolutions care of SwitchRes X.

    Tell me if anyone finds anything more helpful... This had a little tip on page 3 about some internal tuner, but I'd like to find something better.
