Elgato has released an update to EyeTV, its TV recording software for Mac OS X. A free update for registered version 3 users, EyeTV costs $79.95.
New to the 3.0.2 release is the ability to view digital television broadcasts encoded using the H.264 compression standard. ATSC/NTSC (North American broadcast) closed captions now support QuickTime format exports; the tvtv electronic programming guide now supports Sweden; separate deinterlacing options have been enabled for Standard TV and HDTV; the text used in on screen menus has been updated for improved readability; a badge is now displayed over the thumbnail of recordings that have not been viewed; and support has been added for new DVR interfaces, including TerraTec’s Cinergy T USB XXS and the Digital Everywhere line of FireWire products. Bug fixes have also been made.
System requirements call for a G4 or better (Intel included), 512MB RAM, compatible TV tuner, Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
