EyeTV

Postby RokuChris » Tue Feb 08, 2011 8:07 pm

If anyone out there is using EyeTV as a TV/DVR solution and would be willing to help test some things, please PM or email me.

EDIT (4/22/11): I'm getting several PMs from people offering to help test and wanted to point out that this post is a few months old and the channel has since been made publicly available on my website http://www.thenowhereman.com/roku

I just read about this on your personal website. You mention needing a iPhone but the Eyetv site indicates that their software works on the Ipad and Ipod touch as well. Do either of these work with your channel? Thanks!

You don't need any of those things. The site says "EyeTV must have iPhone access enabled", not that you need an actual iPhone. EyeTV calls the feature "iPhone access" even though it works with other iOS devices.

This only works on Macs or Apple products?
Nothing for PC?

RokuChris,

Do you know if it's possible to increase the quality of the stream? The channel itself works great, but the quality from EyeTV is quite low. I am wondering if there might be a setting on the EyeTV side that could force a higher quality stream.

Sorry I was looking at these products did not realize they were not EyeTV related.

It's a feature targeted at 4" screens, so don't expect much. According to their website, you can improve the live streaming by using their hardware encoding device (http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmen ... t2.en.html). I have the original Turbo.264 and it's definitely worth the investment if you export a lot of recordings.

True enough. Wonder how I missed that the first time around.

Does the turbo.264 HD give you a high quality picture?

As noted, the default is quite low res. But the turbo.264 is supposed to auto adjust the quality based on bandwidth. Have you found this to be the case?

I don't have the HD. I have its predecessor, the Turbo.264, which doesn't have the adaptive streaming features.
