  1. I guess they want to save the Christmas trade, which is understandable. The people need something to download after they opened their boxes on the 24th. Let's hope development of EyeTV 4 continues at the same pace after the release of the 4.0 final. There are still many issues to address.
  2. You place the playhead by clicking above it, then dragging it. Then you click the scissors button next to the playtime indicator at the left of the editor strip to add markers. After that you can select a snippet after or in-between markers by clicking on it, and press the delete key to mark it for deletion. The last step is to compress the recording as usual.
  3. I need to correct myself. Play/Pause does work. Hopefully switching/selecting channels and adjusting the volume will come soon.
  4. I tried again, and you are right, some functions of the infrared remote do work! For me skip and fullscreen are working, but nothing else. Play/Pause does not work. Indeed promising to see that support for the infrared remote is coming.
  5. I did nothing special. It "just works" now. Instead of an unusable AVI I get a playable mpg-file. It might depend on the format of the TV stream. I'm watching DVB-C in Germany and that appears to be an MPEG2 stream. The export is in the same format.
  6. I continue to have the following issues with EyeTV 4.0.0b12 8515, EyeTV Hybrid 1.00 EU 2008, macOS 10.14.6, Mac mini 2018: The automatic update from b11 to b12 failed. The hardware infrared remote does not work. Please fix support for the infrared remote. At first at least for changing channels and volume. It's kind of essential for the TV viewing experience. The day of the Program Guide cannot be changed. It used to be stuck on "today", but right now it's stuck on "yesterday" and cannot be changed. Fullscreen blanks out the main Space. When going into fullscreen mode, an unnecessary BLANKING WINDOW is created that blanks out the main Space. This is quite unnecessary. The main Space should remain usable while EyeTV plays in another Space. The problem can be seen when swiping from the fullscreen Space back to the main Space (the one with the Dock). The scape key does not exit fullscreen. The Share button that is visible in the bottom right when playing a recording is still nonfunctional. The playhead in the Editor can only be dragged by clicking above it. NEW: The playhead time indicator is illegible. It's now white text in a bright grey window. Playtime indicator in Editor doesn't move with the playhead. The indicator of the playtime and scissors button should be positioned directly over the playhead and move with it. It's now always positioned to the left where the scissors button makes little sense. Arrow keys don't change playhead frame by frame in Editor. The arrow keys on the keyboard don't change the playhead by a single frame. Instead it jumps by several seconds. Frame by frame precision is required for reasonable editing of the recording. Return key doesn't show details when pressed twice. When pressing the Return key the name and channel of the current programme are shown, but when pressing twice no details show up. This used to be there in EyeTV 3. The player window cannot be closed in the background. When the TV/player window is in the background hovering over the area of the window fades in those buttons, but clicking the close button does not close the window. It activates the player window instead. Only a second click in the now active window closed it. Other Mac windows (including EyeTV's Program Guide window) can be closed while in the background. I have several suggestions for things that could be improved, but are not bugs. I will share those at a later time. Export has been fixed for me. It now exports as mpg instead of AVI and the files are playable by QuickTime Player. Thank you very much! Keep up the great work! I am looking forward to the next beta versions. Please include a list of known issues, so that we know which bugs need to be reported.
  7. Thank you very much for porting EyeTV to 64 bit. This must have been a monumental effort considering the old Carbon codebase. I really love the fresh modern look you gave the new EyeTV. Some excellent work has been done already. So far I noticed the following bugs with EyeTV 4b11 on macOS 10.14.6 with EyeTV Hybrid 1.00 EU2008: The hardware remote that comes with all the EyeTV receivers doesn't work. I think that is a major issue. Controlling EyeTV with the mouse is possible, but very fiddly when sitting on the couch. Fullscreen opens in a new Space, but also blacks out the main space (the one with the Dock). It's OK that fullscreen opens in a new Space. It's the modern way and other apps behave as well (like QuickTime). But then you do not need to black out the main Space with the Dock. You can see the issue when swiping to the main Space when EyeTV is in fullscreen. The escape key doesn't exit the fullscreen mode. Export doesn't work. As others said, the export doesn't work. It simply creates an unusable AVI file. I suggest you do without AVI at all. It's a very old Windows centric file format. Share button is nonfunctional. When viewing a recording, there is a Share button (square with arrow pointing upwards) in the bottom right of the window. This button does nothing when clicked. Playhead in Editor cannot be dragged. The playhead can only be dragged when clicking above it instead of directly onto it. Playtime indicator in Editor doesn't move with the playhead. The indicator of the playtime and scissors button should be positioned directly over the playhead and move with it. It's now always positioned to the left where the scissors button makes little sense. Arrow keys don't change playhead frame by frame in Editor. The arrow keys on the keyboard don't change the playhead by a single frame. Instead it jumps by several seconds. Frame by frame precision is required for reasonable editing of the recording. Return key doesn't show details when pressed twice. When pressing the Return key the name and channel of the current programme are shown, but when pressing twice no details show up. This used to be there in EyeTV 3. Not really bugs, but suggestions I have: Rename the "TV" button in the top right of the main window to "Live TV" to make it more obvious what it does. The details in the EPG and for recordings (button (i) ), are now popup windows instead of its own details page. I preferred the old details page in EyeTV 3. And please make the font in the details view customisable. It is very small and hardly legible on my screen. Please make the font size in the EPG customisable. It too is very small. The white text on gray background in the source list on the left is hard to read. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
