What's new in this release?

EyeTV app: Direct Streaming from all Netstream tuners

The EyeTV app (available on the App Store) has special powers when used with an EyeTV Netstream tuner. EyeTV Netstream DTT and EyeTV Netstream Sat can send the TV signal straight to the app running on an iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch 4th generation (iOS4.2 required). That means superfast channel surfing, and your computer does not need to be turned on.

This feature is designed for MPEG-2 standard definition television signals only. It is not supported outside the local Wi-Fi network.

Bug fixes

Fixed a “No Signal” issue that appeared in certain configurations with DVB-T products. After installing this update, please open the new software, then unplug and replug your device.
Enhanced performance & stability with EyeTV Netstream Sat.
Recordings from IceTV are now correctly labeled as Movie or Series when exported.
Fixes a problem where thumbnails were not always created for recordings.
Fixes a problem where recordings without thumbnails had no artwork when exported.
Fixes incorrect positioning of subtitles when changing between SD and HD channels.
Fixes invalid characters being displayed in chapter names on the new Apple TV.
Resolved an issue where EyeTV HD recordings in iPad format would display artifacts when played back on devices running iOS 4.

First Intel-Only Version of EyeTV

EyeTV 3.5 and all future EyeTV updates are only available for Mac computers with an Intel processor. Power PC processors are no longer supported. EyeTV 3.5 will work on an Intel Mac with OS 10.5.8 or better. However, we recommend Mac OS X 10.6.5 or later with all software and security updates installed.
