Eyetv tv guide not updating
The latter was done by clicking a button on the Mac screen to see if it turned the cable box on or off.Operation One thing to remember is that the Eye TV HD is not a replacement for your cable or satellite set-top box.After connecting the cables as per the Quick Start guide, I launched the Eye TV app on my Mac Book Air.It quickly guided me through connecting to the Eye TV HD, picking the necessary channel guide (and I think I got the wrong one...) and selecting the proper cable box.
Elgato is smart enough to include all of the necessary cables in the box, so you don't have to run out to the local Radio Shack to buy them in order to set up the Eye TV HD.
As you can see in the video below, the user interface is pretty much like any channel guide you would get from a standard cable box.
The guide provides an hour-by-hour listing of all of the shows on a specific channel, and you can also search for shows by name.
Elgato has been in the Mac video market for quite some time, developing and marketing such popular products as the Turbo.264 HD USB video compression device and various varieties of Eye TV, a tuner and digital video recorder for Mac.
Eariler this year, TUAW reviewed the Eye TV Hybrid, a US9.95 USB dongle that serves as a tuner and recorder for over-the-air digital TV.
I did not have the opportunity to try doing the setup again, but I am hopeful that it would have fixed the problem.
