    "myTV.PVR on Leopard"

    January 10, 2008   |   By ilcorago

    Version: Eskape myTV.PVR 4.0.8

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    3.6 worked absolutely great on Tiger. When I upgraded to Leopard on my Intel Macbook, I downloaded 4.08, which gives an "unsupported" error message. It doesn't seem to work on Leopard on Intel Macs. Now what? My hardware is useless.

    "3.6.6"

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    3.6.6 isn't working properly. It crashes and quits on startup.
    And still no update. I can't believe this.
    What a lame company and a product.

    G4 PowerPC OS 10.4.9.
    I also tried this on 10.4.8 but nothing changed.

    "Unimpressive software"

    October 09, 2006   |   By mikehay1

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 3.6.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have tried to use myTV for many years, with constantly frustrating results. Irrespective of which version of the software I use, the scenario is the same: It installs OK, sets up without difficulty, and works. This state of affairs lasts for two or three launches, after which the picture gradually begins to acquire horizontal lines, shortly after which the app crashes. The only solution then is to remove every file, restart, empty the trash and reinstall. I keep hoping that a new release will solve the problem, but it never does.

    Very poor.

    "V 3.6.2"

    May 20, 2006   |   By jasperx

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 3.6.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Program will not work with my dad's new Intel iMac so I hooked it up to my "old" mirror door running 10.4.4. It installed fine and I have scanned and set up TV stations, got remote working. I put off recording and saving for now and went to save my FM radio channels... the program has quit about 6 times now and I have not yet been able to preset more than a single station. After my latest restart I have the spinning beachball of death for over 10 minutes.

    Without further testing, I would say I am sorry I bought it. It just isn't ready for prime time as a for pay product.

    And yes, I have submitted a report on the Intel and sent the quit notes in to Apple though it is not their problem.

    "A Huge Improvement"

    February 02, 2005   |   By rireland_dotmac

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 3.5.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Okay here is the scoop. I one of the lucky ones. I bought a MyTV unit at the local university for $19.99. It was kind of beat up (scratched) and had no software or manual. I bought it home, downloaded the latest drivers, and BANG! it worked. It was not perfect, but it allowed me to watch TV on my iMac. Now I just downloaded the latest software release and I am in shock. I can schedule programs via TitanTV. I can program start and stop recoding times. I think the company has come a long way.

    "Works Fine for me"

    December 09, 2004   |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 3.5.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Same-old same-old. The 3.5.1 preferences window has a new tab for TVTV that seem to be DOA. Best I can tell TVTV is a European TitianTV. The sofware is still about as basic as it could be. There is no help file and the web site is about like the software - basic. It works, it puts a nice, small widow of dish network on my mac for very short money. I wish there was an affordable high-guality TV card for Mac - there seems to be many for the PC.

    "MyTV/X 3,5rc4"

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 2.21b1

    Summary

    has been available from eskapelabs for some days now
    http://www.eskapelabs.com/files/seb-test2.dmg.gz

    This version runs fabulously stable, and a couple of annoying bugs have been squashed since rc2. Great kudos to Scott Naylor who proved extraordinarily responsive and never got tired answering my queries and questions. Version 3.5.1 is rumoured to be released really soon, with some nice features added!

    "Newest version 3.5 is CRAP, 3.0 beta 2's OK if a..."

    October 30, 2004   |   By skyo63

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 2.21b1

    Summary

    ...bit unstable
    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I tried v. 3.5 and reverted to the last usable version, 3.0b2. 3.5 would let me get sound but no video, despite me taking all possible measures before installing, like checking permissions and directory, and ensuring any "old" file to be cleared before installing. The scanner seems much more reliable, though, in the new version, and the Uninstaller is no longer a separate app but integrated into the File menu. Since video is broken, 3.5 is unusable for any purpose (except audio).

    The beta can be downloaded here:
    http://www.eskapelabs.com/files/MyTVxV30b2.dmg.gz
    It will work most of the time, be prepared for some unexpected quits however (never had any hard crashes, though). Just make sure to clear out any "excess" channels after a full scan.

    "Report on 3.0b2 -- A better experience."

    April 08, 2004   |   By loupy--2008

    Version: Eskape MyTV X 2.21b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    To the programmers of the software, I commend you on the VAST improvement in version 3.0b2 over the previous 2.21b1.

    The ONE THING I particularly appreciate is the usage of standard window controls, buttons, etc. Where other companies create awful, hideous, proprietary interfaces, ignoring the built-in OS X interface, this one is clean and compact, and stable. Don't ever change that, please.

    I like the stability of this version. I have noticed immediately these features:

    A built-in guide (USA ONLY).
    Improved scheduling and recording of shows.
    A slightly improved interface.
    An improved preferences dialog.
    A true effort to make the icon of the application look good. Even the glyphs on the buttons look good.
    I'm not sure, but it looks like the picture quality has also been improved -- previously whites and blacks appeared washed of detail, but it's been cleaned up.
    A nice media window -- where you can see the shows you've recorded.
    It appears as if the TV app now disables the screensaver and monitor suspend. This was a huge irritating before.

    NO, I do not work for Hauppauge. And yes, I registered this account just to share my experiences with people. I was ready to pitch my USB tuner because version 2.21b1 was such a disappointment.

    I hope this software continues to get better, and potentially as feature-packed as its Windows counterpart (just not as ugly as it).

    BUGS I have noticed:

    If you minimize the TV window, it will play TV fine in the dock, but the proportions aren't 4:3... but a distorted 4:4. :(

    Upon restoring the TV window, the volume is turned down to 0 (not muted, just turned down). This is very annoying. I don't minimize the TV window that often, so It's not something I encounter that much, but it is a pain.

    A few feature requests:

    1. Please add a numeric keypad that can be rolled out in the controller window. It's frustrating having only an up and down channel arrow. I know I can use the numbers on my keyboard, but I don't want to reach for the keyboard all the time. A hide-able keypad that comes out of the controller would be perfect.

    2. Please add a built-in guide system for Canadian users. The one you've added to 3.0 is USA-only.

    3. For the TV window itself, the metal border does conform to Apple's interface guidelines, since the metal represents a real-world device, but... on the screen, the metal border is really thick. I'd like the choice to choose between a non-metal window and a metal window. Sometimes a borderless aqua window just makes more sense. :)

    Great job, guys.

    Maybe in the future you'll have a Firewire TV tuner for home users with a huge resolution and less visual artifacts and no jerkiness when the CPU is distracted by other apps. USB1.1 is, after all, only 11mbit.
