Hi, I forgot to make a note of my EyeTV Hybrid serial before I clean installed leopard and I can't find the box anywhere.

I did image the drive first though...anyidea what I need to copy over so it doesn't keep asking me for the activation key?

Many Thanks
Mark

Did you register the product with Elgato? If so, perhaps they will have the number. If they cannot provide your number, you just need to copy over the preferences (com.softwaremaker.softwarename.plist). While there are other preferences, I believe the serial number will be contained in this file.
