Elgato EyeTV Hybrid: Early-Adopter Gadget

=- Overview -=

Price: $149.99 (Amazon.com)

Official Site: Elgato.com

Specs: Digital/Analog USB TV receiver; EyeTV 3 software (Mac); USB cable; RCA/S-Video cable; F to MCX adapter; Infrared RC

Company: Elgato



Most guys are aware that Hulu is one way to watch many popular television shows and movies on any computer with an internet connection. Despite the great free service it provides in exchange for a few ad views though, the site still can't begin to measure up to having a full-fledged cable subscription and a DVR. The elgato EyeTV Hybrid, however, is one simple hardware solution that conveniently allows anyone with a Mac or PC to watch and record basic cable or antenna channels using just a computer.

Subsequently, the Elgato EyeTV Hybrid is a great option for guys looking to watch all of their favorite TV content without coughing up the cash or sacrificing the space for an HDTV and a DVR. For Mac users in particular, the EyeTV takes the hassle out of converting your favorite shows for optimal viewing on your iPod, iPhone or iPad, making the Elgato device a convenient way to expand your iTunes library to include digital content downloaded from any unscrambled channel.

Included in the Elgato EyeTV kit is everything a user needs to get his system set up for connecting to a cable line or snagging channels straight from the airwaves. At its core, the super-small USB dongle plug-and-play analog/digital TV receiver connects computers to a television source directly via USB. After plugging the dongle into the computer, video sources then connect to the end of the device through either a composite or S-Video cable. In a nod to the old school, the EyeTV Hybrid can also attach directly to an antenna using an F to MCX adapter too, or can even be used to capture video from analog sources like set-top boxes, VCRs or camcorders depending on setup preferences.

Once connected, Windows users can navigate and manage TV content via Windows Media Center. Mac users on the other hand can take advantage of the unit's robust EyeTV 3 software that provides pretty much all of the great features found on any DVR. For instance, users can rewind, fast forward and pause real-time TV. Schedules can also easily be setup for recording favorite shows and editing out unwanted content automatically. Programming information is provided by TV Guide, which is free with the system for one year. After that, users will be asked to pay an annual fee of $19.95 to keep it.

In terms of recording quality, videophiles should be relieved to know that all television is recorded as lossless, meaning there's no need to worry about lousy quality from poor compression. For Mac users, however, this software can automatically convert and export recorded content to iTunes. iPhone users can also take advantage of a free app that conveniently allows users to remotely control the software's recording scheduling, for those moments when you discover Barbed Wire will be playing while you're out and you want to watch it later. Finally, to make the experience of using the system as close as possible to an actual TV, an infrared remote control with battery pack also ships with the box.

While the EyeTV Hybrid definitely isn't the only TV tuner option out there for transforming a computer into a television and DVR replacement, it certainly stands out from competing products thanks to its easy setup and user-friendly software. Apple loyalists will love the ability to easily transfer recorded shows to the company's ever-expanding list of portable media devices, as well as the option to adjust what's being recorded remotely with a few taps in an app.

For a $150 asking price, this product is definitely only aimed at select group of consumers who either don't have the money or space for a normal television setup, or are in search of an easy way to record or share television content on a home theater computer.

One final caveat to note is that premium scrambled channels like HBO, Showtime and Cinemax, or on-demand offerings, likely won't work with the EyeTV Hybrid depending on the provider; the device is not equipped to decrypt these signals.
