    real live tv does not work??
    I am trying to get "real live" to work on my imac. I have a new I mac 27". When I click on one of the channels, it just gives me a black screen. Anyone else had this problem? Am I missing a plug in? I have quick time installed.

    All I can say is:

    1) They claim to have tech support, I'd suggest contacting them as they state on their page it works for Mac

    2) Most of these satellite TV -> pc things are scams - I'm not saying that real-live-tv is, but you know the saying... usually something that sounds to good to be true... (ie: 3500 channels for $49.95 one time fee)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    I'd certainly recommend proceeding with caution on any site that wants your money and doesn't even work properly. To put it mildly, I've never heard of Satellite Direct being a Mac-friendly company.

    But if you wish to press on, you probably need to install Flip4Mac WMV Player and Perian to get it to work properly.
