I use the eyeTV packages from Elgato all the time at work and absolutely love them.

I have a Miglia TV micro.

 

It is tiny, taking up absolutely no room at all. It uses the EyeTV software which is awesome. I would definately recommend it.

 

Oh and it is not too pricey!

 

All those in support of EyeTV in Front Row say AYE!

Has anyone used a slingbox? I have been curious about them for a while, but jsut haven't heard anything from mac users about it.

I beleive the slingbox only works with Windows, but if you are running Boot Camp or Parallels, it should work fine. Sory dont have any expereince, but does not running windows defeat the purpose of having a Mac???

yes, unless you are a professional that needs to have a business program that only runs on windows... which im not and dont need and i believe that it defeats the point also

I thought I read that slingbox came out with a program with mac support. I heard it was only in the alpha phase, but is atleast out. Anyone have experience with it?

you probaly shoouldn't mess with pre alpha software,

 

the eyetv i think is th ebest choice, because, like the mac, uses eyetv hardware and eyetv software, where the others just use eyetv software.

DONT GET ANY THIRD PARTY CRAP UNTIL WWDC. I just read a rumor that front row is going to have TIVO FREAKIN SOFTWARE!! in 10.5 panther

 

p.s. I was wrong to call it third party crap but come on tivo and front row? I can't think of a better combination besides brad pitt and angelina jolie. Lots of money, amazing sex, beatiful kids front row couldn't even top that. :blink:;)

I would rather have lots of money and amazing sex instead of front row. (im saying that as a reply to macdood13's statement)

 

The eyetv "crap" also happens to convert your standard cable line to firewire. The hardware is essential to the software, otherwise the software is useless.
