    Sorry Ive forgotten what its called VR something something. :confused: Anyhoo... I know noone can give a definite answer to this but do you think Leopard will contain a built in tivo like thingy?

    I am looking at buying EyeTV to record and watch TV but if Leopard has it built in im going to be out of pocket in about 6 months time.

    I suppose one way of guaranteeing it will be included is for me to go ahead and buy EyeTV. :rolleyes:

    At the moment I us my Digital Video camera and hook it up to my iBook through imovie to record TV but then I have to copy it across to my G5 to edit it and its a pain in the ass.

    Thats a good question.
    If you cant wait 4 months till they demo it @ WWDC in Aug then go ahead and buy the EyeTV. The actual release date wont be till around Xmas anyway.
    UNLESS THEY DO A SURPRISE RELEASE in AUG!!!!! :eek: :eek:

    Leopard is probably a year+ out for release. Get the EyeTV now and enjoy it. You can always eBay it later.

    Leopard won't have PVR software built in.

    Macs will not have TV tuners built in.

    The reason: Its in direct conflict with Apple's business of selling TV shows on the iTunes Music Store.

    Get an EyeTV.
