The universal version 1.1 is optimised to take advantage of the iPadâ€™s larger screen and improved video playback capabilities.
The app gives full access to the Program Guide in the EyeTV Mac software for streaming live or recorded shows locally or from outside your network. You can also use it to remotely schedule upcoming shows for recording.
On a local Wi-Fi network, no configuration should be needed. If you want to connect from elsewhere, Elgatoâ€™s free My EyeTV locator service can automatically find the path to your Mac back at home (although you may need to fiddle with some router settings to get everything to work).
EyeTV costs $5.99, but 1.1 is a free update for existing owners. For streaming TV, youâ€™ll need an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better, EyeTV 3.3.3 or higher and, a compatible TV tuner such as the EyeTV DTT Deluxe. For live TV streaming over a 3G connection, Elgato recommends its Turbo.264 HD encoding hardware.
