eyeconnect.log Behemoth

Recommended Posts

My Mac mini has been struggling to operate, and I noticed the 2 TB system SSD had filled.  It should have been about half empty.  I took a significant amount of time to find the file that had grown too large to find the eyeconnect.log file in /Library/Logs had grown to well over 800 GB in size.  Deleting the file resolved my Mac's problems as expected.  Geniatech really needs to look into this and other issues that make the program practically unusable.  I've taken both EyeTV and the EyeTV Helper apps out of my startup items and am about ready to delete the programs entirely.  They're a menace to the entire system!

How long did it take to build that log?  Just looking at my installation there is no "eyeconnect.log" are you sure that EyeTV is the source of the log file.  Did you find it in /Users/<username>/Library/Logs?

Mine grew up to 800 Gb in a matter of a couple of hours.

What's weird is that this file appears not only using EyeTV4 (last version), but also HDHomeRun (I have a homerun 2tuners device).

I am sure that sharing from EyeTV4 is OFF. In addition, activity monitor does not show any eyeconnect program running.

This happens on an iMac M1. It does not happen on my old, intel iMac.

PS: the log file appears under /Library/Logs (not in the home folder, the main one)
