    hi newbie here so bare with me ...
    have had an eye tv for some time but since i upgraded to lion last year (i dont remember a problem previous to this) when ever i plug in the eye tv unit into the usb ports at the back of my imac (27" 2009 3.06 ghz core 2 duo 4gb ram - more info can be supplied if needed)
    it says that the eye tv needs to be plugged into a usb 2 port.

    i thought all the ports were usb 2???? when i go to the system report section and have a look it tells me that the high sped ports are taken by the isight camera and an internal card reader. Regardless of which port i put it in the back it always shows up in the other 2 ports.

    sometimes when i reboot it works but not all the time????

    any suggestions are welcome.
    thanks in advance
