    I am a little wary of exporting a bunch of recordings using EyeTV 2.5 to other formats with my macbook. Recently the hard drive went out after only 3 months into my first macbook, and I am somewhat suspicious that this was the cause of the failure. My macbook can reach temperatures in excess of 190 (F). Could encoding hours of video under intense heat damage my macbook?

    Don't know about the heat of damage, but i've used my MBP for transcoding video for over 2 years now. No problems yet.

    I also use it for Eyetv, but for that I use an External USB drive. Works well.
