    Hey folks.

    I'm buying an digital tv receiver for my mac soon. I want to use the Elgato Eyetv software, but I don't know what is the best hardware. Should I just stick with the Elgato tuners? Or are there greener pastures elsewhere?

    Cheers.

    i'm pretty happy with the hdhomerun, but it depends on what your needs are.

    hdhomerun? I'll check it out.

    Needs...um...

    HD watching/recording.

    Dual tuners would be nice actually :D

    Nothing over about AU$250 preferably...

    A question . . .

    Umm, what is your Mac configuration? The only reason I ask is that I have been fortunate enough to have recently upgraded from a G5 iMac to an Intel iMac, and for the first time in years, I no longer have any fan noise when running the EyeTV Hybrid.

    What else do you plan to do in terms of TV stuff - will you be watching only, or do some DVR functions as well?

    I have an iMac G5, but will soon be upgrading to an Intel mac.

    As for what I plan to do with it, I'll mostly be using it to record, but a few other DVR features as well.
