EyeTV 3.5

Send Article to a Friend

Before Hulu, the number one way Mac users could watch TV with their computers was with Elgato’s EyeTV, and even now it remains popular for recording TV from cable (see “Recording TV to iTunes with Elgato’s EyeTV Tuners,” 19 August 2010). The software has now been updated to version 3.5, which is the first Intel-only release; PowerPC processors are no longer supported. While the new version of the software works on Macs running Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard or better, Elgato recommends Mac OS X 10.6.5 Snow Leopard or later.

EyeTV 3.5 offers enhanced performance and stability with the EyeTV Netstream Sat. Numerous bugs are fixed, among them: recordings from IceTV are now properly labeled as Movies or Series, missing thumbnails are now created, and subtitle position when switching between SD and HD now works correctly. Also corrected are issues with invalid characters being displayed on the new Apple TV, and an issue with iPad playback on devices running iOS 4.2. ($79.95 new, free update, 104 MB)

I would be wary of upgrading to this version at the present time if you have older EyeTV hardware. I am having considerable problems with this version with stuttering video or no signal errors even though I have followed all the current recommendations. Looking at the forum I am not alone. I have moved back to 3.4.3 which works absolutely fine for me.
