Playlist EyeTV HD

  • Excerpt: (1 items) One thing missing from Elgato’s line of Mac-based, TV-tuning, DVR-replicating products has been the capability to easily record content from cable or satellite sources, and in HD quality to boot. The EyeTV HD finally fills that void, and in a very nice way. The EyeTV HD differs from most of Elgato’s other offerings in that it isn’t a TV tuner—it’s a video-capture device.

  • Cons: Buggy export feature, Program Guide lacking some information
