What's new in EyeTV 3.3?
EyeTV Live3G: Free Web App Streams Live TV over 3G on the iPhone
With Elgato’s new EyeTV Live3G web app, you can watch live TV and EyeTV recordings anywhere. The web app connects your iPhone to your Mac at home. It uses state-of-the-art HTTP Live Streaming technology to deliver high quality video streams without sacrificing battery life. The Live3G web app is available immediately at
. Log in using the same “My EyeTV” username and password that you created in the EyeTV application.
For even easier access in the future, add live3g.eyetv.com as a bookmark to your iPhone’s home screen. The web app also works in the Safari web browser running on a Mac with Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
What’s more, Web apps have access to TV-out on your iPhone. So as an added benefit of Live3G, you can watch live and recorded TV on a television or projector by connecting your iPhone with a compatible cable.
64-bit H.264 Video Decoder
EyeTV 3.3 now runs the H.264 video decoder as a 64-bit process. The H.264 video decoder is by far the most CPU-intensive part of EyeTV, and moving it to 64-bit has improved playback performance on Intel Macs with 64-bit processors by 10-20%.
How to tell if your Intel-based Mac has a 32-bit or 64-bit processor:

EyeTV 3.3 is a Universal application.
It requires a Macintosh computer with built-in USB 2.0 ports, and Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) or later. We recommend Mac OS X 10.6.2 or later with all software and security updates installed.
If this is the first time you have launched any version of EyeTV 3, you will be asked to enter the EyeTV 3 activation key. If you purchased an EyeTV 3 Upgrade product, EyeTV 3 will check whether an EyeTV 2 installation is present on your hard drive. If EyeTV 3 cannot find a previous EyeTV 2 installation, it will ask you to enter an eligible EyeTV 2 activation key as well.
Keep all EyeTV activation keys in a safe place, in case you need to reinstall the EyeTV software. Your activation key is also used to activate and identify your Electronic Program Guide account (see below).
After you activate EyeTV, the EyeTV Setup Assistant will guide you through the complete setup and configuration of EyeTV 3. You should complete each step of the EyeTV Setup Assistant. When prompted, please select your country and let EyeTV auto-tune for channels — this is necessary to ensure the correct initial setup of the built-in Electronic Programming Guide (EPG).
