Elgato's family of EyeTV products lets you watch, record, edit, timeshift and archive TV on your Mac. With solutions for analog and digital television, and video quality options to meet differing customer needs, Elgato has an EyeTV to fit your Mac.

What's New:
Hardware Support
Support for EyeTV 250 has been added. EyeTV 250 features a built-in hardware encoder which compresses audio and video signals to MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 formats, freeing up your computer’s processor for other activities. It also introduces Game Mode.
Game Mode
Game Mode is a hardware feature of EyeTV 250. In Game Mode, the MPEG compressor is bypassed for zero latency game play. Connect your game console to EyeTV 250's composite or S-Video inputs, then enable Game Mode by selecting “Game Mode” from the Controls menu.
EyeTV VHS Assistant
For EyeTV 250 and all supported television receiver/recorders with built-in hardware MPEG-2 compression, EyeTV 2.2 features a VHS assistant that walks users through the entire process of creating DVDs from their VHS tapes. It shows how to connect the video recorder's outputs, play back the tape, record it into EyeTV's Archive, and finally burn a DVD with Roxio's Toast 7 Titanium or iDVD, and optionally export the finished recording to the video iPod. The VHS Assistant can be run from the Help menu at any time by choosing “EyeTV VHS Assistant”.
DVB-T USB Stick Support
Support for the following USB DVB-T sticks has been added:
TerraTec Cinergy T USB XS
TerraTec Cinergy Hybrid T USB XS

Bug Fixes
Digital Audio Out now works on Intel-based Macs with Mini Toslink optical adapters.
A hang when switching to play digital audio out has been eliminated.
EyeTV now properly displays shows’ New/Repeat status as retrieved from the TitanTV and tvtv Electronic Programming Guide services. This bug fix will clear the contents of the stored EPG database and EyeTV will need to re-download all programming information.
Problems with corrupted display of TitanTV programming information have been resolved.
Fixed occasional failures of the EyeTV 200 infrared remote after waking from sleep.
A problem with EyeTV Wonder 2.0 and progressive scan playback has been resolved.
A problem in the MPEG stream header of EyeTV 200 Extended Play recordings which resulted in VideoLAN playback at an incorrect aspect ratio has been resolved.
A problem with film-sourced HDTV content containing 3:2 pulldown which caused constant display of Closed Caption status in EyeTV's overlay window has been fixed.
A problem navigating with arrow keys in the EyeTV Editor when using Progressive Scan playback has been resolved.
A problem in the EyeTV Editor where the timeline indicator ended up stuck to the mouse has been resolved.
A problem with exports to QuickTime movies and AAC audio that was introduced by QuickTime 7.1 has been resolved.

EyeTV 2.1 is a Universal application. It requires a Macintosh computer with PowerPC G4 (500MHz or faster), PowerPC G5 or Intel Core processor, and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later.
We recommend Mac OS X 10.4.5 with all software and security updates installed.
