Elgato Systems has released an update to their EyeTV PVR software. The new 1.8.3 version is available for download from their Web site and is a free update for current users. EyeTV is the software that drives their TV tuner hardware, as well as TV tuners from other manufacturers.
The new release adds support for Miglia’s EvolutionTV, a USB 2.0-based PVR interface for the Mac. Users who already own an EvolutionTV can buy the EyeTV software from Elgato.
Also new in this release is integration with Roxio’s Toast 7 Titanium CD and DVD burning software. Up to now, television shows recorded using EyeTV needed to be exported to Toast first. Now those recordings can just be dragged and dropped intot the Toast window.
EyeTV 1.8.3 also adds a new “Progressive Scan” feature that activates advanced motion detection and doubles the frame rate, to deliver improved picture quality for MPEG-2 recordings and live streams.
