    I just bought the 3007wfp and am interested in purchasing the eyetv hybrid. Will this be okay? Will it look decent? Just wanted to ask before buying. Thanks.

    Hallo, I am a happy Eye TV Hybrid user. The only thing I could suggest you is that higher resolutions require MUCH more cpu and graphics power. I am using it with a PowerBook G4 1.67 Ghz and 1.5 GB of ram. When eye tv is running full screen, no other applications are allowed. EyeTV is really a great piece of software.
    Works well with both Tiger and Leopard (tested with a Mac mini G4)

    it looks decent, but nothing like a real TV.
    also spring for the 250. the built in hardware helps

    what does the 250 do that the hybrid doesn't?

    i have a 2.33 mbp with 2gb ram. i don't plan on recording much, just watching tv.

    I have the 250 plus. It does the transfer from analog to digital. I am sure its more technical then that but your not gonna hear it from me. So instead of using all processor power, eyetv may only use half. currently i am watching tv coming from a s-video and the white/yellow sound cables and its using about 43% of my processor power. This is with a 2.2 ghz MBP. I cant compare it with the hybrid bc I dont have one, maybe someone could?

    I'm getting the HDHomeRun in a few days and will try to post a small personal review thread somewhere. I'll be running it on my 24" Dell.
