    "uses more CPU"

    May 17, 2013   |   By gizmo00042

    Version: EyeTV 3.6

    Pros

    adds more features and is updated for more recent macs...

    Cons

    I have an older macbook (core2duo) and have noticed when set to "progressive scan" the video now stutters a little and is not smooth like it was in older versions of eyetv.

    Summary

    This is case of all older computers, new software demands more performance from the hardware. I am trying to downgrade the eyetv software to an older version now.....

    "Regrettable purchase"

    November 10, 2012   |   By b2010d

    Version: EyeTV 3.5.6

    Pros

    Easy to install and setup
    Great UI

    Cons

    Unreliable

    Summary

    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.

    "Very good, but..."

    February 08, 2011   |   By sherab108

    Version: EyeTV 3.5.1

    Pros

    see below and please post if I am missing something

    Cons

    see below and please post if I am missing something

    Summary

    ..This version is a bit of a step back IMHO.
    The only thing I can see as that step backward is that to access the main onscreen menu one has to go from fullscreen to a windowed screen thus making it very "Un-TV like" and making it more like a computer program.
    My computer IS my TV/entertainment center and when in TV mode I don't want it to even resemble a computer (if/when possible)...having to resize the main TV screen to reveal the guide and recordings is VERY clunky.
    version 3.4 is NOT like that and I have gone back to that version until there is a fix.

    I may be missing something because no one else seems to be complaining about this change...if I am please post a reply to this review.
