Elgato Systems introduces EyeTV Hybrid ATSC Tuner

EyeTV Hybrid ATSC/NTSC Tuner
Elgato Systems today introduced the EyeTV Hybrid, a combo NTSC/ATSC TV tuner for Macintosh computers that plugs into a USB 2 port. I own the EyeTV 500, which only does digital TV and has a Firewire interface. It has completely changed the way I use and view HDTV. Unlike some DVR systems, there are no monthly fees or, for now, restrictions on what you can do with the content.

I haven’t yet reviewed the latest EyeTV 2.3 software, but it allows you to go into that full screen interface that works with Apple’s Front Row software for interfacing with iTunes, iPhoto and more. It also integrates fully with TitanTV’s listing service. Since the Hybrid also does analog and digital cable, this could mark the beginning of Macs as new and improved home theater devices.
