When will there be a 64 bit version of EYE TV for mac?

Recommended Posts

A version 4 for Win is announced on Geniatech's site (14.95 €) while the version 3 for mac is still at 79,95 € being a 32 bit app which will be deprecated in the near future.
Am I alone in not understanding this kind of product policy?

Geniatech is working on a 64 Bit Mac Version for Eyetv 3, which will be ready in time.

Probably just like Geniatech is working on an aTV version but (after years) still did not deliver.

I don't know the TV things. But Geniatech has announced they will be ready, they will. Please trust them. Their customes are all over the world. Why do they take risks to lose them? Now that you choose them, please just give a little faith of them.

Angela, you clearly do not know Geniatechs track record. Let me tell you: it is not lousy, it is very very lousy!

Not only promised they years ago a usable aTV app (which is not available on this day), they took away (without any warning) support for the most popular decoder (HDHomerun) a decoder which was sold directly by Elgato (predecessor of Geniatech), they hardly ever react to problems mentioned here.

 

So you better start reading some posts here before you post nonsens.

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!

Why do you so mean? Simply because my view is not the same as yours? I can't believe that what the kind of person you are to offend people who just want to express their own
ideas. When I entercountered the problem and looked for help, it was Geniatech providing me with service (For example,  they offered the updates of eyetv 3 software and development of the new eyetv 4 windows software )and support instead of others.   I did not initiatively choose them either, but no matter if you choose them or you have no choice but to wait, they did not stop resolving the problem-At least for me. Again, I express my own idea. 

Eyetv 4 windows has already been released, it supports the following tuners for now.  You also can visit their website: https://www.geniatech.eu/product/eyetv-4-windows/

We do not care about what the Windows version does or supports. EyeTV 4 doesn't exists on OS X (macOS) and for all we know , it might never exist on OS X.

We want 64 bits support on the Mac OS X version (macOS), supports for the tuners we bought with EyeTV when it was sold by Elgato (HDHomerun) and bug fixes.

And so far we haven't seen any of this, bugs have not been fixed and no effort is being made towards any of the things I mentioned above.

So we do not trust anything Geniatech is saying anymore.. this is the reality of the market, not someones view.

So if your use case is EyeTv 4 on Windows, you are in the wrong thread as here we're talking about EyeTV on OS X and the lack of support and/or update as well as wether or not there will be a 64 bits version for the future OS releases.

Mojave will still allow to run 32 bit apps, but it will be the last version of MacOSX with 32 bit support. 

Nevertheless, Geniatech does not give me confidence that they will deliver on time, even if it still is some time left...

Not commenting in this, ?their? forum is one part of the sad truth about the commitment of Geniatech.
