"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Premium HD cable and satellite TV on your Mac

EyeTV HD is a full-featured DVR that captures television from your cable or satellite receiver and delivers it live to your Mac in full HD. If you have a premium package of cable channels, or have satellite TV, then you must use the receiver provided by your cable or satellite company to be able to view all your channels. EyeTV HD is the only solution that gives you full access to all that premium content by connecting your Mac directly to your cable or satellite receiver. It includes an infrared remote and channel changer cable ("IR blaster") for automatic control of the receiver.

Unique dual-format capture mode

EyeTV HD has a unique dual-format capture mode that enables you to record in the iPad and iPhone formats at the same time. This feature supports super-fast exports to iTunes from EyeTV, and facilitates the streaming of live and recorded TV to an iPhone or iPad using the optional EyeTV app.

Easy Setup

EyeTV HD is very easy to setup and use; simply connect EyeTV HD to the outputs of your cable or satellite receiver with the included component cables, and to your computer via USB. Then position the included infrared channel changer cable nearby. The EyeTV software setup assistant takes you through a simple configuration process and in just a few minutes youll be enjoying all your premium content like never before.

Superb quality digital TV recordings

EyeTV HD records in the pristine H.264 format for a crystal clear, high-definition digital picture. The H.264 format delivers beautiful image quality and a superb compression ratio, which produces smaller file size when compared to MPEG-2 recordings. H.264 can match the best possible MPEG-2 quality at up to half the data rate.

Archive your recordings

EyeTV HD comes with Toast Basic disc-burning software so you can archive your favorite movies and TV shows and save space on your hard drive.

EyeTV HD comes with EyeTV 3, the award-winning TV software for Mac.
