  1. I am using multiple Diversity Tuners so that I can record multiple programs simultaneously (up to 6 with 3 Diversity). Recently, when programming multiple recordings at about the same time, the first recording to complete would immediately force completion of all others simultaneous recordings, whatever their programmed completion time. Extremely irritating : only 1 recording complete ! I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to locate the source of this new problem, which occurred just after I upgraded my Mac mini (late 2014) to Mojave. I reinstalled several times EyeTV 3.6.9 (7524), to no avail. Then I remembered that when migrating to Mojave, installed on an external USB disk, I also changed my previous USB Hub (Macally U3HUBA) for a newer USB-3 Hub, supposed to be USB-2 upward compatible. Although EyeTV seemed to work as well with this new, more powerful Hub, all 6 tuners displaying well in parallel in different windows, I finally discovered that the remaining 5 aborted recordings were occurring ONLY with this new Hub (AUKEY USB 3.0 Hub). Reverting back to the previous Macally Hub solved the problem. So I guess the lesson there is : yes USB-2 and USB-3 are upward/downward compatible… in theory. Unfortunately ugly behaviors can result from mixing USB-2 (Diversity tuners) with USB-3 (Mac mini late 2014), especially when a hub is inserted within the video signal path.
  2. I only recently migrated to Mojave, hoping to keep 32 bits EyeTV 3 running (EyeTV 4 users feedback is still disastrous...). I had to migrate to EyeTV 3.6.9 (7528), to avoid annoying “frozen windows” when running a movie full screen with EyeTV 3.6.9 (7524). And thus, I was also victim of the “no more extended recording time” bug. I however found a workaround, although it is a bit painful : - start EyeTV 3.6.9 (7528) - open EyeTV/Preferences/Storage window - set Start -> 0 - set End -> 0 - close EyeTV/Preferences/Storage window - open AGAIN EyeTV/Preferences/Storage window - set Start -> 15 (or your value) - set End -> 30 (or your value) - close EyeTV/Preferences/Storage window => EXTENDED RECORDING WORKS AGAIN ! Unfortunately, it works only UNTIL you Quit EyeTV, then you have to do it again after EyeTV restarts. I suppose one could program an Apple script with does that every time EyeTV starts again… volunteers welcomed… 😏
  3. When using the latest Mac M1, only the 64 bits EyeTV 4 will run under Rosetta (badly...). But does EyeTV 4 supports all previous tuners, such as EyeTV T2 Lite ? If yes, can I connnect multiples EyeTV T2 Lite tuners ti the same EyeTV 4 ? Thanks for your help.
  4. I am afraid that is a bit too cryptic (!) for me : if I add somewhere a "SAT>IP receiver" which supports CI+, does that mean I could use the EyeTV software to browse and display encrypted channels on my Mac ? And how should I then interconnect this receiver / EyeTV Netstream 4Sat / my Mac [running EyeTV 3 software] ? I found such a SAT>IP receiver there : SAP>IP CI+ client : ZIP-5107, but I have no idea if it would be enough to keep EyeTV software as my primary interface on Mac, while being able to use it for displaying/recording encrypted channels too.
