Gefunden bei http://www.xlr8yourmac.com Reader Reports on Firewire EyeTV 300/400 models - (updated with another report from EyeTV 400 model owner) Previous reports I've had to date on the EyeTV from El Gato were from the original USB model, although they added new Firewire based models (300/400) a month or two ago and a new 200 model last week. " nothing but trouble sofar with the eyetv 300. Setup was easy but a scheduled recordings went into a loop at the first commercialbreak and extended recording until the harddrive was full! Artifacts in the pictures-thick green lines and pixels. Live TV picture freezes from time to time. Only a reboot of the application gets it back going. Its slow as molasses. My imac 800 crawls like a snail when i try to edit a recording. Everything takes absolutely forever. I give it another week and then it goes back to the shop. too bad really. General picture quality seemed ok and the whole concept is really cool. -Hans I asked him what OS X version and EyeTV driver version he was using. OS X 10.3.2 and driver 1.31. After a full weekend of recording stupid videoloops i finally gave up and returned the unit today for a refund... " An EyeTV 400 model owner replied to this post: " Just to let you know I've got a EyeTV 400 DVB-T firewire box in the UK. I'm running 10.3.2 on an iMac 800Mhz 17". I have to agree with the EyeTV 300 reader report, that it's really really slow. It takes up 100% of my CPU time, even though the specs on the El Gato website say it will run on a G4 500. Also, the 'auto-tune' function in the setup menu keeps crashing on me, although stations are found and stored. The image quality is good, just wish the interface and mpeg2 decoding code was more effecient. I also gave it a try on my Beige Tower (upgraded to G4/700Mhz, 512RAM and 10.3.2) and it runs so slow it can't decode at full speed, although perhaps this could be the 66mhz bus speed? Regards, James L " Das klingt ja nicht so doll... Mal sehen, was zum EyeTV 200 so an Meinungen kommt.
