Ratings and Reviews
Works on local network, but no longer over internet
This app used to be excellent. The whole system was a great solution for taking local broadcast programming and streaming it to your device anywhere you were. Now it only works on the local network within my house. When I am outside of that local network, it pretends like it will work, and everything gets up and running correctly, but then it only streams a black screen with no audio. I wish they would fix it.
Bring back the airplay button
The EyeTV app works pretty good, but the airplay button is missing. Prior to iOS 10, the app would stream AirPlay to an Apple TV if AirPlay was selected in the control center.
With iOS 10, AirPlay on apps without an AirPlay button as part of the app now defaults to mirroring mode only; there's no way around it.
With Geniatech now owning EyeTV, they need to put in a bit of programming effort and add an AirPlay button to this app.
Avoid and don't waste your money
They never update this app and crashes too frequently.
Works fine on a MacBook Pro (2010 model) running Mac OS 10.6 but on a more powerful imac running Sierra it is total garbage. Video and audio studders and hogs the cpu(s) unlike when running on os 10.6 which barely uses any cpu to live stream.
