EyeTV for iPhone by Elgato – released

We are suckers for watching TV on computer. In that way taking screenshots is easy and you don’t have to turn your head too much while working on the computer. Now we are using USB box from Hauppauge Inc to suck on DVB-S signals from Astra 28.2 satellite. However this satellite offers now also DVB-S2, i.e. HD TV, so we were searching for new box and we have found one at Elgato – a company specialized in making TV sticks and boxes for Mac. Fortunately that DVB-S2 box works for Windows (drivers provided) what cannot be said about EyeTV app for iPhone, that just has been released:


… because you need a Mac with Elgato TV stick or box to watch live TV remotely! Too bad. Anywho, here is more information about this app:

Your EyeTV on your iPhone

This application requires iPhone & iPod touch OS 3.0.

For the first time, the power of award-winning EyeTV fits in the palm of your hand. The EyeTV app enables you to watch, record, and enjoy live and recorded TV on your iPhone or iPod touch.

PLEASE NOTE: This app requires a Mac running EyeTV 3.2 or higher.

The EyeTV app accesses the EyeTV software running on your Mac at home* to deliver these great features to your iPhone:

• Watch live TV and change channels anywhere (Wi-Fi connection required)
• Watch your EyeTV recordings
• Browse the comprehensive Program Guide
• Start recordings back home on your Mac immediately or schedule them for later.
• View and edit your recording schedules

EyeTV 3.2 running on your Mac converts live TV to the format recommended by Apple for streaming to the iPhone, ensuring optimal picture quality.

Conclusion: if you have a Mac at home that is running whole time then you don’t need Slingbox – you can get EyeTV box/stick and this app.
