  1. Finally got around to playing with VMWare. Installed High Sierra under Mohave and everything worked fine except I couldn't log into the EyeTVEPGPremium service. Don't think that has anything to do with VMWare, though, because it's also happening on another (formerly working) installation. Maybe they're now enforcing only one active installation login? I'll have to dig out a spare Mac to install Catalina on, that's probably going to take a while...
  2. I have both Parallels and VMWare, but I’ll start with VMWare because Parallels has gone subscription and I hate subscription! I also have Virtual Box but when I tried to use it in the past it gave new meaning to hard of use, and it (at least used to) only support Mac OS server.
  3. Downloaded version 7528 and it fixed all the problems I was having with the 7527 beta. Got a six month extension on the TV Guide replacement. I'm a happy camper! I'm already going to have to virtualize High Sierra (or maybe Mohave) under Catalina to support some other 32-bit apps. Maybe time to see how EyeTV behaves in a virtual machine...
  4. Do you still have the old, working box? In my case, I went to the old box, picked LIBRARY/Channels on the left hand side. Then I picked "Service/Edit on the bottom, and it brings up a window titled "Manage Channel Sets". Pick a Channel Set, and click on "Export...". Move the created file to the new box and reverse the process, picking "Import..." instead of "Export...". Worked for me. YMMV.
  5. I was going to try it, but it's a lower build than the beta I currently have installed (7527). The description talks about "Update eyetv plus – renew activation / subscription", which I don't think is the same as EyeTVEPGPremium where I'm getting the new guide. At least it's a completely different button, and when I select United States it says not available in my country yet:
  6. I did a select all in the Channels list and changed them all to EyeTVEPGPremium - there are 1105 channels! TV Guide is gone from the dropdown, replaced by the new one. xmltv is still there. I should also have mentioned earlier that I was doing the export/import of the channel list because even though all my zip code's providers show up in the setup window, it never showed the right Service and never downloaded a channel list.
  7. The computer I installed it on did have some older version of EyeTV on it, although I had only ever used it for OTA recording (Olympics!), so it didn’t have my DirecTV channels on it. I followed the instructions from an earlier post in this chain on how to export a channel list from one EyeTV installation and import it into another. All the channels do show up in the channel list, but for some reasons not all channels get populated in the guide.
  8. I still have an active TV Guide subscription, so I downloaded the beta mentioned above and tried it on a spare computer. No trouble logging into EyeTV, and the service now says EyeTVEPGPremium - USA and Canada with the TV Guide expiration date. After some fiddling around in Setup, I managed to import my channel list from my real EyeTV installation and ran the program guide update. I saw the grid start filling up and thought "Voila!", but unfortunately it only gets a (random?) subset of the total channels. Anyway, it looks like they're very close!
