    Hi, I've just received an Elgato EyeTV 410 and I'm loving it so far! One thing I'd like to know is how can I grab a still from the TV and save it as an image file? A regular screen grab just comes out blank (something to do with the overlay I guess).

    Any help much appreciated... :)

    Normal grab works for me. Press command-shift-4 and draw a box around what you want.

    Using OS 10.4.1 and EyeTV 1.8

    Thanks, I figured this out myself too! :)

    It appears that your method or taking a screen grab of the whole screen (cmd-shift-3) both work, but trying to grab just the tv window doesn't work.
