    Hey guys,
    I have a Mac mini (older Intel 965 graphics chipset, not current Nvidia), which I'd like to use as a PVR system, recording live TV, playing back video on my TV, etc.

    I have a Hauppauge card to capture the digital TV stream (I'm in the UK - freeview).

    Is there a system like MythTV for Mac OS X, that is a bit more polished (and that will make use of my current hardware)?

    I've tried using MythTV under Linux, and while it works, it's very unpolished. I can't find anything better that's even Mac-only.

    That's an idea, but seems to have even more disadvantages than using it under Linux.

    I guess there's no equivalent system for Mac OS X, written specifically to take advantage of the Core technologies?

    A commercial program I have used is EyeTV by Elgato. It works great for me in watching live TV, recording, exporting video.

    If you're looking for an open source program take a look at Plex ( This one looks more like MythTV.
