If anyone has the Eyetv Hybrid 2009 (or earlier), I would welcome your advice. 1. Right now I have the device connected to my bedroom cable box via coaxial cable - because that's the only cable I currently own that's long enough. I have a small TV in this room and it is not HD. Would buying an S-Video or composite cable really make a difference? The quality on my iMac is not what I would consider excellent - though I am more interested in recording quality than watching quality, if there is a difference. Watching TV is not a priority since I have to be near the cable box (unfortunately). 2. I didn't realize that if I use the cable box, the Eyetv software can't control the channels - which is a bit cumbersome. I was wondering if anyone here uses an "IR blaster" - though I am not really interested in spending more money. 3. While I have cable, even I am confused by the digital changeover if it happens this month. Do I need to change the Eyetv settings? I am also disappointed in the FM tuner - many local stations are just static. So I am not sure I want to keep my new toy - but if anyone has an Eyetv Hybrid and likes it, maybe you can persuade me otherwise!
