EyeTV 2.4 or later will automatically detect the Turbo.264, if it is attached to your Mac.
Then, if you choose certain H.264 export options in EyeTV, the Turbo.264 will be used to accelerate the export.
These are the export options which will use the Turbo.264:
1) iPod button at the top of the EyeTV Programs window (if H.264 iPod exports are chosen in the EyeTV General Preferences)
2) Apple TV button at the top of the EyeTV Programs window
3) iPhone button at the top of the EyeTV Programs window (also compatible with iPod Touch)
4) A scheduled recording set to export to Apple TV
5) A scheduled recording set to export to an H.264 iPod format
6) A scheduled recording set to export to the iPhone (also compatible with iPod Touch)
7) The “for Apple TV” export option, from the File menu > Export
8) The “for iPod (Best)” export option, from the File menu > Export
9) The “for iPod (Smallest)” export option, from the File menu > Export
10) The “for PSP (H.264)” export option, from the File menu > Export
11) The “for iPhone” export option, from the File menu > Export
When the Turbo.264 is being used to export, the progress bar in EyeTV
will change to red, and there will be a series of pulsing circles below
the export bar.
When using the Apple TV export, SDTV content will retain its
original resolution. 720 x 480 NTSC content will be exported as 720 x
480; 720 x 576 PAL content will be exported as 720 x 576.
You can use Turbo.264 with EyeTV as long as the Turbo.264 hardware is attached to a Mac with EyeTV 2.4 or later installed.
The EyeTV hardware does not have to be attached to use Turbo.264 for
EyeTV exports. If the EyeTV hardware is attached and operating, it
will not conflict with Turbo.264 in any way. Turbo.264 can only export
fully completed EyeTV recordings - it does not transform a Live TV
stream to H.264.
You should install the Turbo.264 software first, so that all
necessary components are installed, before using it for the first time
with EyeTV. You can plug in the Turbo.264 before or after the EyeTV
software is started.
HDTV content in EyeTV will be exported to 800 x 448, when using the Apple TV export and Turbo.264. Using anamorphic encoding, the video will play back as 960 x 540.
