    My Uncle recently bought EyeTV 3 and we where wondering if I could use his serial # or if I had to go and buy another copy of it. I did a search and I was able to find a thread about EyeTV 2 but I wanted to be sure because I do not want to blacklist his serial or something like that.

    The serial number is for a single copy of the software. Whether it works or not is irrelevant: you and your uncle would be breaking the law and opening yourselves up to criminal charges and potentially being sued in a civil case for damages.

    Buy your own.

    Indeed. Unless explicitly noted in the EULA/SLA/on the box, you can pretty much assume that any paid software that requires a serial number is intended for one single copy regardless of weather or not it will work on a second version.

    What you are asking is piracy. Just buy your own copy. Elgato makes great products and they should be supported. I wish their eyetv product could be purchased in a version that did not require the tuner and just offered guide info. I hate having to browse to a certain website to do that.

    Again, do not pirate software.
