"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.
