Thread: Eye Tv

    Eye Tv
    Now that i have my mac, i was looking for new things for it. I stumbled upon eye tv. It lets you watch live tv on your mac and record it like tivo. I'm probably going for the eye tv 200. It has a built in converter so it doesnt use power from the cpu. But, i read that the eye tv wonder can be hooked up to an xbox for lag-free gaming. Can the eye tv 200 also do that?

    If you could....
    Let me know what set up you're going to end up doing. And let me know how it works out. I'm looking into the same thing. Mostly for the Xbox hook up. Just curious about how well it works though.

    Connect Xbox to Mac? Isn't that like trying to hold the same Poles of two different magnets together?

    Couldn't resist.

    You cannot connect the Xbox to the EyeTV200. Since the 200 converts video to mpeg4 in the unit there is too high of a latency for video games to be playable on it.

    The Wonder 2.0 does all of the work on the computer allowing you to play video games on your computer. I use this for my Xbox and it works great.

    The 200 is better for encoding video because it doesn't need a huge processor to do it
    The wonder is better for games

    Neither of them allow you to pause and rewind what you have already watched unless you have the program recording already
