    I'm gonna get this along with my new macbook 2.2 ghz with 4gig of ram. I'm just wondering if i can run this with visualhub and if it will make it go faster?

    also, how long on average do you think it would take to convert a bluray .mkv movie to apple tv with the macbook listed above with and without the elgato? please help. thx

    Can see the end of the Earth from here
    Check the review at iPod Lounge for details - I think they did some comparisons. You can find the review here.

    I have the EyeTV and love it. Great stuff.

    the turbo 264 doesnt work like that really, it takes the load of the CPU allowing you to do other things with your MAC without it slowing right down, Visual Hub isnt compatible with the Turbo 264 as visual hub doesnt use quicktime h264 library to encode.

    I find the Turbo 30% faster then letting VHub and my CPU do all the work

    Also Turbo 264's highest resolution is 800x600
