"Regrettable purchase"

November 10, 2012  |  By b2010d

 |  Version: EyeTV 3.5.6


Easy to install and setup
Great UI




This is potentially a great piece of software. However you need to be checking it regularly to see if it works. In my experience it regularly forgets to stop a recording and will just fill up the HDD on which you are storing programs.
I'm using it on a Mac Mini (2011) with a 1TB HDD and an Elgato NetStream. The usual scenario is that i program one or two programs to record during the week, go away, come back on Friday night, and it will have not stopped a random recording from early in the week, so that I have a show that should be say a 30 min or one hour recording, but it will have recorded the next 24 or 36 hours on that station. I am now using V3.5.6 but all versions seem to have the same problem.
Customer support has worked hard to try to rectify, but I am giving up and will purchase a stand alone PVR to replace.
