Easy Setup
There is no need to reconfigure your local Wi-Fi network. Simply activate the option "iPhone/iPad Sharing" in the EyeTV preferences. Sometimes, fully automatic configuration may not be possible outside of your local network. Please see for details.
If you’re using the OS X firewall, be sure to allow incoming connections for both EyeTV and EyeConnect. EyeTV uses port 2170. If that doesn’t let you connect, try turning off the firewall and turning it back on again.

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.

My Eye TV


I am having trouble purchasing TV Guide for scheduling my recordings.I don't buy software in Euros and have contacted the company in Germany via email with no response. There is no way on the website to buy the software in dollars.

The shows are look pretty on my 27" iMac.
I could use a stronger signal. I use a
Radio Shack digital air antenna to get a fairly strong picture.
I have a 5K computer and would like to see
The Eye TV program start broadcasting sharper video.
