    I have analog cable at home and digital cable at college. Nothing from Elgato (the makers of EyeTV) will work... or at least nothing that I've found. Does anyone know of any product that has both analog and digital capabilities?

    Get 2 cheap'n'cheerful boxes for either end, get a TV-In card, and just plug it in to whichever you want. It's what I'm gonna do for getting Freeview on mine

    I think he meant he was using 2 different devices, one that handled analog cable and one that handled digital, and plugging the appropriate one into a video input card in the Mac depending on whether he wanted to watch analog or digital cable.
