Elgato has refreshed their EyeTV hybrid USB TV tuner and shrunk its shape a little bit smaller. Compare to the first generation, Elgato EyeTV Hybrid USB TV Tuner have got no significant changes in its features other than the smaller dimension. But its size is still bigger than their Elgato EyeTV DTT Deluxe Mini TV tuner that we have here a couple months ago. So what’s the unique selling point of this version compare to the others?
Well, its USP of this $150 TV Tuner might be the ability to let you watch over-the-air digital television in full HD resolution, and it can tune in unecrypted (clear QAM) and analog cable TV signals. Elgato EyTV Hybrid also allow your to route signals from analog source similar to game console and VCR to your Mac so you can watch or play with your macbook.
Elgato EyeTV Hybrid USB TV Tuner will be shipped together with their EyeTV 3 software, where you can watch live TV, DVR functionality and shared recordings for your iPhone and iPod touch.
