Had for over a year

Oren B, Apple Store
22 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased to use with the late 2012 model 27" iMac which shipped Feb of 2013. When installed I was using U-Verse. Installation went smooth, up and running within a half hour. Good picture quality, the only flaw was periodic picture resets which briefly interrupted the broadcast before self correcting. Recording into iTunes worked as advertised but quality (as expected) is better if purchased from iTunes. I compared Game of Thrones BIG difference but still good.

Perfect addition to my desktop

Dave N, Apple Store
28 December 2013
  • Summary: Was going to buy an HDTV for my study, but got the EyeTV HD for Christmas and it proved to be the perfect solution. With access to all my Cable TV offerings, I can work on my computer and watch/listen to live sporting events or news, as I chose... right on my iMac's 27" screen. And... setting it up was so easy and seamless. Recording is a bonus.

  • Excerpt: I use the EyeTV to record sporting events to my Mac for personal storage as well as video editing and highlight compilations and let me just say, it's the PERFECT product for what I do. Being able to schedule recordings and convert the DVR recordings to files on my computer is all I've ever wanted out of a DVR device!

Direct TV and Elgato

Steven D, Apple Store
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Easy set up on the 27 inch IMac, Elgato software is top rate, simple and easy to use. Can't speak for Dish Network equipment but with a new Direct TV install it does attach to the Genie with component cables. On the mini client the outputs are hdmi and mini din 10 pin a/v, the Elgato inputs are component and mini din 10 pin a/v, so you are limited to 720 dpi [all the a/v connection supports] unless you get a hdmi to component adaptor or ask your Direct TV installer for...

  • Summary: My family and I were looking for a device to record the news and we were told about this device from an Apple Store employee. This is the best recording device out on the market. It is easy to use and the picture quality is HD.

Worked Great better than I imagined

Judi O, Apple Store
12 March 2012
  • Summary: One regret is not buying it sooner so I could see many of the old 8mm tapes of my kids as babies. I had been looking for something like this for a few years. My only complaint is not having more info on setting up from a Sony Camcorder to a mac. I plugged in the yellow and red cord ignored the white cord to the camcorder to the unit and then to my iMac hit record and then hit play on the video camcorder and it worked flawlessly.

Great Product

David S, Apple Store
20 January 2012
  • Summary: I use Comcast/Xfinity and everything worked great, easy to setup, and watching live TV or recorded shows on my iPad was so easy and quality and sound - no problems. Great support from the vendor via email and phone. The only problem I had was Elgato does not yet list the Cisco RNG150N cable box as a set top box so I had to teach it using the remote from comcast.

  • Summary: This is really easy to set up and does exactly what it describes. The picture quality is outstanding on my 27" screen using Cablevision HD box. I didn't buy it to record shows so haven't tried that yet. I don't know what problems others have had but I'm delighted.
