I recently bought the Elgato Eyetv 250 and have a new Intel iMac and was wondering if I had a second LCD monitor how would I watch tv full screen on the second screen so I can use the computer with the tv on the second screen or would that be possible

Yes.
I don't know what a Elgato Eyetv 250 is, but I am guessing it is a TV turner.

Just take the open program and drag it over to your other screen that maximize it, should work fine.

Just tried it out with my Plextor (Basically an EyeTV 250 without the Gaming mode and 100 bucks cheaper).

You will need to download Dr. Bott's Screen Spanning hack since the iMac doesn't natively support spanning. Other then that it works very easily

Doesn't downloading dr. bott's screen spanning hack void the warranty?

I bought the Windows version from a 3rd party for 150 since I already had the EyeTV software
