    EyeTV 4SAT connecting to Koax output ?

    Answering your questions it will 1) work with the coax outlet of your SAT-Dish connecting it to the first (A) input of the Netstream 4Sat. You will be able to receive one SAT channel and send it to 1 device 2) work in the mentioned way with an AppleTV if it is a ATV4 version and has the Netstream app installed. You will NOT see any encrypted channel (SKY, HD+, ...) as the Netstream does not have a CI-Slot for smartcards. There is a workaround running an OSCAM server solution in your network, but there is no OSCAM client for the AppleTV. So if you want to see encrypted channels you better go for a Dreambox or VU+ receiver and an app like vuplusTV on the AppleTV.

  5. I'm using my macbook with an external screen connected via HDMI (its a macbook pro retina 2013). (Also I'm using an external USB dirve connected directly to the left USB port. I dont know if this is related to the topic). Scheduled recording works only when either the monitor connected to HDMI is on and not in power saving mode or if the macbook is opened so that the internal screen is on. If I want to do scheduled recordings while I'm sleeping in the same room I open the mac then I switch off the external screen, the I use the F1 and F5 keys until everything is dark. hth someone
  6. Hello, A. using EyeTV 3.6.9 (7524) with hardware EyeTV Netstream 4Sat works well thelast two years, also recording two programmed movies parallel. But a few weeks ago, a problem grows more and more: the first record dont stops after the konfigured time (somtimes for 10 hours!)and the second recording dont starts :-(. B. Another problem: After recoding some movie, the eyescedule-file doest disappaer and so, the recoding still remains in the recordlist until deleting it manually. Did anybody have teh same problems and waht to do? greetings Arnd
  7. ALL, sorry for probably poor questions. I read a lot, but got finally confused. So I am looking for answers to two questions: I am planning to buy a eye TV Netstream 4sat to stream SAT TV via Apple TV on an ordinary TV First question: there is one Koax-Antenna output in the respective room, served from the "conventionel" SAT System in my house. I want to connect the EyeTV to that Koax-Antenna output. Does this work? The Eye TV has four input antenna adapters, which one do I have to use for the mentioned usage? Second question: if the Koax-Antenna solution works, is it possible to connect and stream via Apple TV to the ordinary TV, as mentioned above? Thank you for any comment and advice. regards HCL

    EyeTV Archive iCloud clash

    Hi, I have EyeTV on two Macs and their EyeTV Archive is shared via iCloud. I was wondering if anyone can suggest a way to prevent both machines recording the same programme at the same time, since they share schedules etc. Should I move their respective EyeTV Archives somewhere else, so it's not shared via iCloud and, if so... any ideas where? Thank you!

    Smart guide problem

    Now resolved!

    Smart guide problem

    Hi, I hope someone can help me! I have loads of Smart Guides in EyeTV. I have transferred to a new Mac and have set the Finder to show hidden files. My Smart Guides file is present but EyeTV doesn't show the Smart Guides when I start it on the new machine. Does anyone know how I can explicitly tell EyeTV where to look for this file? Thank you!

    Closed caption support

    Closed Captions are as far as I am aware a US i.e. NTSC only standard. Australia uses DVB broadcasts so presumably also uses DVB subtitles, EyeTV has long supported DVB subtitles. (DVB subtitles are very similar to DVD subtitles - both are bitmaps superimposed on top of the video image.)
  12. I have just returned to these forums after a prolonged absence, like the other posters here I was shocked to discover the latest update removed support for the HDHomeRun tuners. I had literally today received a new HDHomeRun Connect Quattro aka HDHR5-4DT as an 'upgrade' to my previous twin tuner HDHR4-2DT model. Both of these tuners I had bought because for literally years Geniatech have been promising their own network DVB-T2 tuner and still have not released one. Having received my new HDHomeRun tuner as part of installing it I for the first time in a long time rebooted my Mac mini from its normal Windows7 back in to macOS to also update that side to connect the new tuner. Even though I have a full legal EyeTV license and various older Elgato tuners I normally use Windows Media Center via Boot Camp. It was therefore whilst updating the Mac side that discovered this terrible change. Fortunately the previous EyeTV version was merely moved to the Trash. What I find particularly ironic is that whilst in the latest EyeTV version the list of network tuners no longer lists the HDHomeRun it does list a fictitious NetStream-T the long rumoured network DVB-T2 tuner. I notice that a Windows version of EyeTV has been released. When you think about this, this makes some sense. Microsoft have discontinued Media Center so whilst it was in Windows7 and Windows8 it was not in Windows10. (EyeTV for Windows needs a minimum of Windows10.) However having had a quick look at the product page it does not appear to be anywhere near as good as Windows Media Center. Yes it does live TV, yes it does recording, yes it (allegedly) has smart series recording. What it definitely does not have is a full-blown '10-foot' user interface, also based on the Mac version of EyeTV one would be very dubious over its multi-tuner capabilities. Remember todays saga was initiated by my receiving a four tuner device which is working perfectly in Windows Media Center with all four tuners recognised and full intelligence over simultaneous recordings. The two areas EyeTV for Windows might be better are support for H.265 channels - not an issue here in the UK and since there are none I have no idea if this would merely require having a suitable DirectShow filter in Windows, and the fact that Windows Media Center has never been able to decode the over-the-air EPG data if encoded in Huffman coding like all the UK HD channels are, EyeTV can decode these on the Mac. (It should be noted that there has been a long outstanding bug in EyeTV over extracting DVB guide data with a HDHomeRun which now support for the HDHomeRun has been removed is unlikely to be fixed.) I suspect even if Geniatech get round to shipping a network DVB-T2 tuner it may lack BDS driver support for Windows and therefore not be usable in Windows Media Center. This would put me off it. One can hope the release of a Windows version of EyeTV might lead to renewed software development with new features and feature/bug fixes also being ported back to the Mac version. I know there is still a lot of users of Windows Media Center despite Microsoft's best efforts. (Apart from not providing it for Windows10 Microsoft have also it seems deliberately and repeated sabotaged their own EPG data source.) Apart from people like myself running an older version of Windows specifically to keep Windows Media Center there is also a significant number who use a version of the Windows7/8 Media Center software hacked to run under Windows10. So, there is a potential market for a decent computer based Media Center solution.

    EyeTV 3.6.9 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.1

    I’m on a 2018 mac mini and mojave. After downloading the newest eyetv it installed fine and is running on a hauppauge 950q.

    EyeTV 3.6.9 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.1

    Well then you have to wait forever, it will never come. EyeTV is abandon ware, sorry to say it.
  15. Both do much more recordings simultaneously. With either I sometimes record up to 8 stations. Have no deep knowledge on the technical stuff but it has to do that with DVB-C a number of stations are bundled in a single transmission. EyeTV only records one of these stations while others record the bundle and then select what you have chosen. Tryit out. Both are available fully unlimited at no cost.
  16. Thanks Ton. I'll have a look but I'm kind of doubting it can do 4 recordings simultaneously.
  17. I suggest that you better put your energy in "voting with your feet" meaning looking for alternatives like TV-Mosaic or TVHeadend. Both for to use.
  18. Same observation here. Just upgraded my main machine to Mojave and went directly to 10.14.1. Scheduled recordings appear to work again. And the computer goes back to sleep afterwards. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the issue is really solved.

    Gracenote errors in EPG data

    Problems with UK EPG also.

    Gracenote --> XMLTV

    Be aware! Gracenote's Program Titles can be different from xmltv.co.uk's. If you have Smart Guides created with Gracenote, re-create them manually.

    Gracenote --> XMLTV

    Having become extremely frustrated at Gracenote's deterioration of service and ridiculous increase in price, I developed the following system to download the UK EPG from xmltv.co.uk. The xml service is not as slick as Gracenote's but it's free! This has been working for over a week now. Applescript to retrieve http://www.xmltv.co.uk/feed/6721 UK tv 24 hour listings and load it into EyeTV.app. Can be adapted for other xmltv.co.uk downloads such as the 7 day download. You must decide what directories to put the Applescript and where working directories will be. See Instruction number 2. Be aware that xmltv.co.uk periodicly changes the URL to disable old users who have not stopped their automated downloaders that are no longer required 1. Following is the Applescript to run. Copy and paste the lines into the Script Editor application and save it to the directories that you select or created per instruction 2. You can run it manually but there are instructions to have it run daily below. # Start of Applescript # Retrieve head of file to test for change of URL. do shell script "curl http://www.xmltv.co.uk/feed/6721 --head --silent --output /Users/Your_Username/some_subdirectory/xmlTV/UKtv_24hr.xml" # Set variable with the retrieved file's path. set xmlUKtv_24_file to "/Users/Your_Username/some_subdirectory/xmlTV/UKtv_24hr.xml" # Read first line of file and test for missing file set firstLine to paragraphs of (read xmlUKtv_24_file before linefeed) # Send email if file doesn't exist if ((firstLine as string) is equal to "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found") then tell application "Mail" set my_message to make new outgoing message set subject of my_message to "xmlTV 24 Hour Download Failed" set content of my_message to "Not sure why it happened...

The following is the contents of local.xmlTV_UK_24hr_Dwnld.plist. Copy and paste into a text editor and save to /Users/Your_Username/Library/LaunchAgents/local.xmlTV_UK_24hr_Dwnld.plist. Be sure to save as a plain text file into the directory shown. All other files can be any directory you want. You can change the filename if you like but the file extension MUST BE “.plist” <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Label</key> <!-- Comment Delimiters --> <!-- Following contains a unique string that identifies your daemon to launchd. --> <string>local.xmlTV_UK_24hr_Dwnld</string> <!-- Run when it first loads.

The following is the terminal command to launch the above file which will then run every 24 hours at 03:30 which is shortly after the xmltv.co.uk database is updated.

  22. My problems with overrunning scheduled recordings, which were pretty much constant until recently, have disappeared since updating to macOS Mojave (now on 10.14.1).
  23. I have the same problem and it doesn't matter if I use Gracenote or XMLTV. I'm not going to renew Gracenote as it is now a rip off. Is anyone interested in investigating a class action lawsuit against Geniatech and Elgato?
