  1. I have been using Plex with a HDHomerun Silicondust HDHR5-4DT network tuner very successfully for the past two years. I get the EPG data from IceTV for a thing $4 or $5/m. If you want to trim the resultant mp4 files I use Avidemux_2.8 which processes them very quickly. If you don't trim the files then both Plex and infuse allow you to use the skip add functionality (you can set Plex up to cut out the adds but that doesn't seem as reliable)
  2. You need to buy a new licence for the EyeTV 4
  3. EyeTV 4 must have support for the HDHR5-4DT(AU) HDHomeRun CONNECT QUATRO TV Tuner which is sold in Australia (4 channel TV) Not interested in Option A

    update 3.6.9

    https://www.geniatech.eu/download/eyetv-3-6-9-7524/ works properly in Australia
  5. https://www.geniatech.eu/download/eyetv-3-6-9-7524/
  6. I can confirm the Beta does not recognise my 4 channel HD Homerun tuner in Australia
  7. Can you provide the link to download 3.6.9 (7527) please? This is great news if Homerun support has returned
  8. In Australia we have shifted to mp4 for our free to air HD TV. EyeTV for some reason does not export these recordings using any of the "no re encoding" forms on some of our (5) HD TV stations. Some do it reliably and the others (ABC and SBS) producing a stuttering video as described here. What I have found is that exporting it in an "encoded" form (I use Apple TV HD 1080p) fixes the problem completely (at the expense of a larger file and much slower export) however. There is something in the way EyeTV records its mp4 files that make it difficult for other video apps to read them. I can usually play the native eyeTV files using Infuse but it often claims a 90m recording is 20 hours or so.
  9. Given that in Australia all the Free to air TV HD stations have moved to mp4 (which they say in the FAQ is something they don't support) and there are no MPEG2 streams left then EyeTV is dead in the long term (even without 64bit support). Strange then that their tuners (EyeTV diversity fully supports mp4 in HD)
  10. To put it slightly differently, none of us chose Geniatech! Almost all here are people who purchased devices from Elgato or their software and then were sold down the river when the company was sold to Geniatech. As they have no products to sell in Australia (as an example) and they have stopped EyeTV working on network tuners that are sold what market is there for they product in many parts of the world. So you seem to be alone in the "give a little faith" game. If they came out and said there were developing EyeTV 4 and what tuners it would support or provided the aTV app that we all asked for we might have a little faith. As it is just a forlorn hope they will produce something and realise that without hardware no-one is going to buy their software!
  11. I have just purchased a HDHome run connect 4 channel tuner in Australia and am running the PLEX DVR service. I have been pleasantly surprised at how good it is. They have also (as of today) implemented a grid view for the TV Guide. It integrates with a local EPG provider (XMLTV although it has its own) and the recording options are quite good. It saves the files in a TS file which is either MPEG or MP4 in Australia so it is pretty easy to trim in Wondershare Video Converter. I still have a soft spot for EyeTV but Ill continue until such time as the existing software stops work (it is less reliable when their are multiple simultaneous records needed to be done) or a new version arises (if ever). I don't need to watch live TV remotely. Bizarre decision of EyeTV to stop supporting the HDHomerun tuners as they don't have an alternative product themselves in Australia.
  12. Well its very important for those of us with devices that are still supported!
