Been an EyeTV MacOS user for a very long time - so happy that you are working on a MacOS 10.15 Version.  Running your latest beta now; any plans to get the window re-sizable and moveable?  THANK YOU THANK YOU !

Hello all,

 

I just made the upgrade to Catalina and of course the old eytv was not working anymore. I installed the beta version eyetv 4.x and tried to setup the eyetv netstream 4C. Looks like the access to the netstream is working and I can start the Auto-Tune to search for TV channels. But the eyeTV is not able to find any channel via cable (DVB-C PAL BG) which was working without issues on the old version.

Update: I have upgraded to Version  Update v20191025 /v_EyeTV4.0.0b8(8511)  and have the same issue. Looks like the Autoscan option for cable TV has an issue. No Channel can be found. The TV cable is connected directly with the Netstream 4C and as normal the Netstream is connected via Ethernet with the WLAN router. Is there any kind of special procedure I have to use that the channels can be found?

In Recordings view:

  • iPhone/iPad/appletv export buttons missing (these are still configurable in Preferences > General, so I assume the buttons should still be there)
  • the size slider (in bottom right of window) is missing, but works anyway
  • If you right-click a recording and Export (or click on its share button), the file dialog has no Cancel or Save buttons and overlapping interface elements
  • choosing to export as h.264 gives an .avi file extension
  • There are only two H.264 export options and one mpeg option (there used to be a lot more options)
  • Clicking the Save button in the Save As export dialog crashes program every time
  • If you try and transcode the native .eyetv file with HandBrake, it reports that the file duration is 00.00 seconds

In the Editor window:

  • Control+E shortcut no longer works to summon Editor
  • edit controls (the triangle and split-triangle at top and bottom of timeline) are either not present or not visible
  • Clicking the new “scissors” button seems to create an edit point in the timeline, but there is no way to adjust this. If you create several edit points and select a portion, the Compact command in the ellipsis menu is not available
  • As a result of both the above, there doesn't seem to be any way to edit recorded files (to trim start and finish and remove commercials) and no way to transcode the file for use with Apple TV or iPhone either using EyeTV or another application such as HandBrake

 

Smart Guides

  • Existing v3 Smart Guide’s update to new version, but you cannot rename them
  • When specifying criteria for a Smart Guide, you can’t add or edit in text field
  • If you create a smart guide (that doesn’t require any text input), you can save it, but you cannot name it or change name from ‘Untitled’

Configuration

  • EyeTV DTT
  • iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019)
  • MacOS Catalina v10.15.1
  • EyeTV Beta version 4.0b8 (8511) (all issues reported above also occurred in b6 and b7)

Hi, I've got an iMac running Catalina (downloaded when first prompted to - wish I hadn't).

I'm also a bit unadventurous.  What am I supposed to do when I get this message re the latest EyeTV beta update:

 

“EyeTV” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

Wow. Beta 8 was quick. And it fixes several issues. Nice!

New issues:

- while the EPG (second window) seems to fixed, the channels and the content move oddly when scrolling around. The content can be moved freely, the channels flip around. This looks a bit strange. Have the channels always in line and set them to smooth scrolling as well

- sometimes the app gets unresponsive in fullscreen and needs to be force quit 

- windowed view: app does not remember size of the window (especially when the channel needs to switch from 16:9 to 4:3 (wise versa) the size will be reset. This has probably something to do with those aspect ratio issues / stretching

- settings: "Start EyeTV in full screen" leads to a complete meltdown of the app. I needed to force quit EyeTV. I also needed to delete the plist file to get it working again.

- Menubar: after a while menu bar entries "Audio" and "Controls" cannot be entered anymore. It will only show the last entry, all others are gone

 

These issues have been reported on earlier betas and are still in it:

- Full Screen aspect ratio is wrong. EyeTV tries to stretch the screen - no matter if stretching setting is off - and no matter if aspect is set to 4:3, 16:9, wide or whatever

- Full Screen has flickering content in the top/bottom black bars (sometimes they appear red)

- If you have more than 5 hours of timeshift buffered, the navigation bar (on the top of the window) behaves abnormally and jumps wildly around

- please make the EPG which shows up when you press the channels logo also show whats up next instead of just the actual running program

- "All channels" view sorts channels not in the right order. Standard should be: Channels 1-X, then all the channels which have no assigned number. And maybe give the option to not show them at all

- Settings: some text is black on dark grey (macOS dark mode) - this is not readable at all

- Info bar: sometimes it moves to the middle of the screen and does not return to the bottom until application restart

- EyeTV crashes when I want to hide "Playlists" in the left column

 

Wishes:

Keyboard shortcut for showing the overlayed EPG (remember to show more content :))

Hello, Latest Beta using.

Window resize with double click does not work clean. opening to full screen work but getting back to the old window size by clicking on the green resize window does not work, stays big.

 

Also I can not reload and upgrade to the Gracenote EPG service by using the setup

seeing the following screen, habe followed the rouse seen but not luck. any idea?

On launch, I get a black screen and triangle that locks up the computer.  No key commands work.  Occasionally I can crash out with Option Command Esc but usually I have to reboot.

This seems to be reported by a number of other people...

2) EyeTV assistant starts (Welcome to EyeTV!). The it takes about 10 seconds and a black screen with a "!" in a triangle appears and on the left side "16:9" - nothing more happens. ESC does not work. I have to use option+command+ESC, then I am back to my desktop. Within the 10 seconds I can type next, next... until the key should be entered but before this can be done the black screen as described above appears.

 The application starts and the window showing channels come up first and is immediately followed by a black window that I assume is where the picture will be displayed.  About 3 seconds later that 'picture' window goes to a translucent white and the the whole application crashes.

Hello!

First of all, I'm very happy to see that EyeTV 4 is a thing! I've been using two EyeTV Hybrids with EyeTV 3 in my home for years. The 64-bit support and the updated, modern interface (especially the borderless window) is just great! I will try the beta in the days to come.

I have a semi-related problem however, and I hope to find answers here:
EyeTV does not get a signal from the breakout cable any longer. It has been working fine two days ago, all of a sudden I can no longer get a signal.
The source is not the problem, the composite cables work fine on a TV. I tried reinstalling the software, disconnected EyeTV for a couple of minutes. It doesn't work with EyeTV 3 or the EyeTV 4 Beta.

I'm hoping that this is a common problem. I want to digitize my deceased father's VHS-C tapes, even bought an old Panasonic VHS-C camera.
I'm grateful for any help. Thank you!

• EyeTV Hybrid
• MacOS Mojave

Hi there, I'm testing beta8. And I found and issue with 5.1 audio. Something seems wrong with the channel layout or the stereo downmixing. You hear the background, but not the main audio.

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Download this example http://polysom.verilite.de/tmp/Example.zip

2. Open in EyeTV3 on Mac and play. You hear the dialog  and background audio.

3. Open in EyeTV4 beta8 on Mac and play. You hear just the background. There is no dialog audio while the people are talking.

 

This is with version 4.0b8 (8511) on MacOS 10.14.6

Some random notes on beta 6.

1) Setup Assistant closes so fast that I cannot type or paste serial numbers on Mac mini (10.14.6) with two EyeTV 610:s. So doesn't start at all.

2) On my iMac with Hybrid, works but the remote doesn't work at all

3) often chancing channels mutes sound.

4) going full screen crashes immediately, now running beta 8

5) picture quality is excellent
