    Yes We All Use EyeTV 500 and/or Hybrids

    Yes We All Use EyeTV 500 and/or Hybrids. 500 is discontinued FW digital only. Hybrid is the current $150 analog/digital USB2 model. I use both simultaneously. They come with EyeTV 2.3.3 software that makes your Mac a Tivo.

    Add an :apple:TV to your HDTV and you're in MacTV-Land Heaven. :D :)

    Terratec Cingery XS - uses the EyeTV software which is really brilliant!

    You can set it to record a TV channel too which is a great feature. The software features a great interface, easy to navigate and so on.

    I'd look for something with EyeTV software featured with it.
