Am new at forums. Looking at buying IMAC i7, 8gb mem and wondering about hybrid (analog+digital) tv tuners. Was considering the elgato, but support seems to be non-existant, and over heating probs, or just doesn't work. Help.

I have the Elgato...and it works great...no problems (knock on wood)!

Thanks for the reply. Have you used it for extended viewing? eg watching tv for hours.

P.S I think I got the reputation thing right

I have two monitors hooked up to my Mac Pro. Sometimes on one monitor I will be doing work, internet surfing, e-mails...and on the 2nd monitor I will have the Elgato playing a TV program...which I may be "watching" or not.

So the answer is yes...the Elgato TV hardware/software can play TV for hours!

Elgato is really the leader for TV on a Mac...so there really is not too much else to choose from.

It's almost like you got Elgato and you have Elgato!

Do you know anything about Elgato diversity, and ability to record and watch tv at the same time?

The answer is yes. Here's the LINK to the ElGato web site. It's loaded with good info. They even have a user's forum.
