EyeTV Streaming To iPad
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
The new version 1.1 of San Francisco-based Elgato’s popular EyeTV app for iPhone brings live TV streaming over Wi-Fi or 3G connections to the iPad.
In updating its EyeTV app to support the iPad, Elgato optimized the app to take advantage of the iPad’s much larger, high resolution screen and its superb video playback capabilities. The result is beautiful full-screen playback – on the patio or on-the-go. EyeTV 1.1 is a ’Universal App’ which works on both iPhones and iPads, and is a free update for existing owners.
EyeTV turns iPad into the ultimate portable television. The EyeTV app running on the iPad or iPhone works in tandem with the user’s Macintosh at home to stream high quality live or recorded TV anywhere. In addition, the app gives full access to EyeTV’s program guide for finding something to watch and the ability to remotely schedule upcoming shows for recording.
Setting up EyeTV for iPhone/iPad is easy: On a local Wi-Fi network no configuration is needed. When connecting from elsewhere, Elgato’s’ free ‘My EyeTV’ locator service can automatically find the path to the Mac back at home.
EyeTV for iPhone is a universal app and requires a Mac computer running EyeTV 3.4 and configured with a compatible TV tuner device. Streaming live TV requires an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
