    So this is the setup I have purchased and will be receiving soon enough. Anyone else use this combination of TV tuner and computer? My debate had been to buy a 24" iMac or get an HDTV and went with the Mac. Anyone use this as a TV in their bedroom, watching from about 15 feet away?

    I'm curious for any experience with EyeTV Hybrid with console gaming too, and TV.

    I also have a 24" iMac and although I don't have the eyeTV Hybrid, I have the eyeTV for DTT and from that distance (siting on my bed), it looks great! I was really impressed with it for its size and price. After all, it's basically a pen drive. Sitting back with the Apple Remote and pausing live TV is just... useful! It's a breeze to set up too. I don't think you'll be disappointed :)

    I got the EyeTv Hybrid and 19" WS LCD (mini Core Duo) Most of the time,I use it as small screen while surfing the intertubes ..

    And it's looks the same or better as my old crt tv that i had before i went with the EyeTv/mini setup.. :eek:

    Just been talking about this in this thread...

    It would seem that the EyeTV 250 model is the only one that is suitable for gaming.
