Elgato Systems has released
a maintenance update to the EyeTV software that powers their eponymous Digital Video Recorder (DVR) for Mac OS X. EyeTV 1.7.1 adds support for the EyeTV Wonder USB 2.0, a similiar DVR interface with USB 2.0 instead of FireWire, created jointly ATI Technologies Inc. and Elgato.
Also new in this release is an export preset for iMovie HD, the new version of iMovie bundled with Apple’s iLife ’05 software suite. With this addition, EyeTV recordings can be exported directly into an iMovie HD project. The EyeTV software has been localized into Japanese, as well. International users who have an EyeTV 610 — a device that supports the DVB-C standard — will also see a v1.0.3 firmware update that improves support with DVB-C cable providers.
