Want to turn your Mac into a DVR with full access to premium cable or satellite TV content?
Elgato says its customers can do just with its EyeTV HD, that lets users watch, record, edit and enjoy cable and satellite TV in high-definition, including all their premium channels, on a Mac. What’s more, the EyeTV HD includes a unique dual-format capture mode that records in iPad and iPhone formats at the same time, allowing users to stream live and recorded TV to an iPhone or iPad using the optional EyeTV app.
Elgato says its EyeTV HD is easy to setup and use by connecting EyeTV HD to the outputs of the cable or satellite receiver with the included component cables, and to the computer via USB. The company says users can then position the included infrared channel changer cable nearby for flicking through channels while on the couch.
The EyeTV software setup assistant takes you through a simple configuration process and before you know it you’ll be manipulating your own premium content.
EyeTV HD also has a unique dual-format capture mode so that you can record in iPad and iPhone formats at the same time. And an optional EyeTV iPhone/iPad app lets you stream live TV to your device. EyeTV HD also enables fast exports to iTunes.
