    Good to know Ton - would be great if someone from EyeTV could comment!

    eyetv 3.6.9 (7521) for mac does not include HD Homerun

    Ok so Geniatech have now partially explained their decision to drop support for some SilconDust products - specifically the Plus/Extend (HDTC-2US) - see this post to their FAQ. But this explanation doesn't make sense to me - since you can turn off the MPEG-2 -> H.264 transcoding - and indeed mine has always been off. So I have a follow-up question here in a new thread. Hope they choose to respond. And perhaps I don't understand... love comments to the new thread.
  3. OK so I see you've posted some of the reasoning now here... and I have a follow-up question here. Hope you choose to respond
  4. Hi this question is a follow-on to the earlier announcement that eyeTV 3.6.9 (7521) and later doesn't support the Silcon Dust HD Homerun Extend (HDTC-2US) - see this thread. Today I notice this post in the Geniatech FAQ which gives us one reason for this decision Now, I have all transcoding off on my HD Homerun Extend - see config page below i.e. as far as I understand it my HD Homerun Extend is sending MPEG-2 transport streams - as required by newer eyetv versions. In fact it always sent MPEG-2 streams - I never had transcoding turned on - and this is working well today with eyeTV 3.6.9 (7520) which I continue to use. So Geniatech, why can't the HD Homerun Extend (HDTC-2US) work with newer versions of EyeTV if I turn off transcoding?

    Thanks for everyone for all the advice... very helpful. In addition I have asked this question in the main "product" forum... let's see if EyeTB/Geniatech management replies or simply deletes the post! Last chance time for them to offer apology and try to regain a little trust.
  6. OK so you decided to stop supporting SiliconDust HD Homerun products in EyeTV (see this thread**) and strangely you didn't explain when you made this change what *YOUR* recommendation is if we want to continue to use the latest versions of EyeTV in North America / Canada with an antenna NOT cable. I don't believe any of the hardware EyeTV sells works in North America / over-the-air (OTA/antenna), so what hardware do you recommend that you are committing to support for the next 5-10 years, that would allow anyone in a household to watch live TV from OTA/antenna on any device over wifi, *AND* allow EyeTV to act as a Mac based DVR? (This is what SiliconDust HD Homerun provides with EyeTV software). ** To be clear of course you can decide to stop supporting hardware by another manufacturer at any time. That's your right. But why not do it in a way that attempts to keep the trust between yourselves and the customers who chose, in good faith, to use your software with another manufacturer's hardware that, at that time, you did support. The *way* you let us know, means you've managed to upset a large number of customers. We just discovered your decision when we did a normal upgrade, no warning, no apology, no announcement to give us time to (for example), buy a replacement for our SiliconDust products that *does* work with EyeTV. In fact as far as I know you've not even made a recommendation of what you are suggesting HD Silicondust HD Homerun customers do - hence this post! By the *way* you have handled this has reduced the trust that 1000's of customers have for you and your products to zero. That's just *BAD* business / bad for profits - your shareholders / owners must be mad!

    How do we get someone from Geinatech management to reply here so they can explain to us?

    I also want to protest in the strongest terms about the dropping of support for SilconDust HD Homerun network based tuners - why Geniatech? Why? And why let, what must be thousands of users, find out when it breaks! At least explain to us the decision and do the decent thing and offer to refund the license fee? You've just rendered eyeTV useless.
