Has anyone used any of these products? Your thoughts please.
Elgato eyeTV is a pretty good system I think, and now supports HD feed. Also it's completely removable, small and portable. It costs around $150 I think, but you may be able to snag one on amazon or ebay for less.
Yep. It's about 1/2 the size of that thing, it looks like. I've used it for a while, and I love it. Go Elgato!
Another vote for Elgato, it's essentially the de facto standard for TV viewing on your Mac. Great product.
What is the name of the new elgato product?
You talking about the Turbo.264?
Out of curiosity, do you guys have it hooked up directly to analog cable? to the output from your dish box? etc?
I have an iMac at home and have both analog basic cable that comes in with my broadband, and dish network. Which would be easier to connect?
Hopefully not going too far off the topic
Will it work with macs other than the mini?
Me likey, but not HD ready? WTF?
Ha yeah, thats exactly what I was thinking when I clicked his link. Did you see a price floating around there anywhere??
Basic Cable is always easier, as you don't have to deal with "How do I change channels on the box?", but there is some reduction in quality. If you don't care about having to manually change channels, then use the dish box. Although if you are doing that, you really don't need a tuner, but just a Video Input device as you can just use the RCA jacks on the box to provide your signal.
Yet another vote for Elgato... it's just wonderful
Thank you guys! I ordered the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid 2008 Edition today. I am surprised that it is not very expensive.
No problem, I'm sure you'll be very happy with your purchase.
You'll definitely love it, especially if you have HD service, it's simply amazing.
I was under the impression that the EyeTV wasn't compatible with encrypted digital cable, like we get from Comcast in the U.S. Has this changed?
What would you suggest
Kinda got interested in this thread.
I have a couple of mac pros that air running off an AEBS which is about 30 feet away, and my Satellite box is approx 40 feet away. I don't want to run wires to my computer either.
I am not sure that the product mentioned above would work in my situation, but would this one?
I would set up my AEBS next to it so it could use it to send the signal via airport.
Thoughts please & thanks
