    Hi there,

    When I attempt to install the EyeTV 2.5.3 update, I receive a message saying "The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items." I tried repairing permissions with Disk Utility, but it failed to fix the problem. Any ideas on how I can clear up this message?

    Thanks! :)

    Did you try downloading the update from the site, not doing it from within EyeTV?

    Agreed, directly downloading the full, standalone update and then running it is smart. A couple of other things to try: Make sure you're logged in as an Administrator and not just a Standard user. Be certain EyeTV isn't running - and is in the main Applications folder and not tucked away elsewhere or in a subfolder - so the updater can find it where it expects it to be. Also be sure you haven't _renamed_ it to something different; it should just be exactly "EyeTV". Worst case, last resort: RE-install your original version off CD, then run the full standalone updater ontop of that.

    I am downloading from the website, and when I drag the application from the dmg into my applications folder, it asks me if I want to replace the existing file, I agree, and then I receive that error.
