I am looking at dumping my tivo because of the 12.99 fee which is really pretty stupid. I was looking at getting a comcast dvr which is only 9.99 a month and can record something while you watch another channel. then I ran across this little gem called eye tv. can you use the eye tv with an external firewire drive? I have a duo iMac and don't want to use its harddrive space. can the eye home record tv or do you have to buy something separate? anyone tried it out? whats your opinion on how good it works? and for the hardware side of things whats everyones opinion?
