I have an Intel Macbook Pro running Sonoma vs 14.4.1 and EyeTV vs 4.0.0 build 8532.  EyeTV works quite well altho sometimes crashes when I use the red close button or quit EyeTV in the upper left of the window. I am in California, USA using ATSC channels. The program guide is quite nice for the 60 channels I receive, it is free and rather generic. I am attaching a photo of the Channel list showing I have chosen the ATSC/Open Cable for the source of the TV Guide and a photo of the Program Guide.

Did you get it solved or still experiencing it?

I have EyeTV running on 2 Macs. My main ‘recording machine’ is still on OSX12 sits under my TV and also runs a Plex server. My other ‘Desktop’ Mac I keep more or less up-to-date. I just updated this to OSX 14 and EyeTV seems to work, apart from the crashing on exit. So I may update the other Mac soon. Both are Intel Mac Minis, 32gb ram and 10gb ethernet. I haven’t made the leap to Apple Silicone yet! The Desktop Mac used to be a very old Tower Mac tricked out with lots of goodies, but had to be retired once I couldn't update the OS anymore.

Shame about the EPG being dead. I have got used to setting up repeating manual recordings and then converting the saved video directly with Handbrake, not exporting from EyeTV. I edit this video in EyeTV to remove adverts. Exporting in Handbrake lets me keep any subtitles, which is good 👍🏻.

I recently changed my collection of single satellite tuners to a single 4 Chanel satellite network box. Great bit of kit, works really well for me. Can be had for a bargain on eBay too. I can record 3 streams at the same time if I want too!

Interesting 3rd party EPG mentioned above. I’ll have a look at this. Manually having to setup recordings is a very retrograde step compared to what I used to do. Tivo, a few decades ago, was brilliant at finding things all by itself, using its algorithms. But I guess we are in a different world now, streaming, etc. I don’t know how much longer there will be any real need to directly record a satellite feed?

I solved my issue. The root cause was an alias "EyeTV Archive" on my Documents folder (with this folder saved in my Dropbox & with the original item no more available). The settings of EyeTV was displaying the folder I chose. But I found in /Library/Preferences/com.elagto.eyetv.plist a path to the alias. 

I deleted the alias, launched EyeTV, changed the settings and restarted. 

Glad you resolved the issue! It’s interesting how the alias "EyeTV Archive" in your Documents folder, saved in Dropbox, caused the problem. Discovering the path in the /Library/Preferences/com.elagto.eyetv.plist file was key. Thanks for sharing your solution!
