Show notes for this episode:
- Elgato sells the HDHomeRun bundled with its EyeTV software, and the package retails for about $160.
- Don’t have a Mac? Then simply buy the device from Silicon Dust, which will cost you only $130.
- I kept running into issues with EyeTV not recognizing the HDHomeRun as soon as I changed my network configuration. Repeating the guided setup with the EyeTV Setup assistant finally did the trick.
