DVBviewer with a MAC
Hi, I use a PC app called DVBviewer to view freesat & freeview TV channels on a PC (in the UK).
Has anyone had any experience with TV capture hardware for a MAC.
Also have used WindowsMediaCentre in Windows7.

Not sure where to start with a Mac

Look here to understand what I do.

Sounds like you need something from EyeTV:
EyeTV Diversity - Watch two live TV channels Picture-in-Picture, or enjoy superior free-to-view digital TV reception in Diversity mode

The Diversity has twin Freeview tuners, so you watch or record two channels at the same time. Needs a roof TV antenna though, unless you're on top of the transmitter.

Looks a quality product. I use a Dual Tuner (PCI-express) from BlackGold. DVB-T and have impeccabible reception via an aerial in the loft. I have tried a couple of USB tuners but both were not up to the job. By the way had a look at the specs of the EyeTV and it does not mention DVB-T2 which is the newer DVB transmission standard ? Can this handle HD channels ? Do you have one yourself?
