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.

Works Okay...

I have Eyetv 3.6 running on a 2011 Mac mini 2.5 i5 w/ SSD serving tv and recording for 2 iPads.

Overall streaming works okay. Even at its highest quality setting its more pixelated and choppy than my Directv hd I used to have, but it works. Overall layout is nice and clean.

It takes a about 15-20 seconds sometimes for it to recognize the Mac and start serving tv.

I have not been able to get EPG to work on the iOS client even though I've paid for the yearly TV guide subscription and it works fine on Eyetv for Mac. I've emailed Elgato about this.

You can't channel surf. Each time you want to change the channel you have to go back to the guide which is annoying.

Overall I'm kinda meh... on it. Most of the features work, it's just kind of slow at times and the streaming quality is just okay.

Doesn’t stream outside of my home network,

I can get the app to work on my iPhone and iPad when at home on the same WiFi network as my desktop, but I’ve tested in various places on WiFi while out and about, at work, etc… and app is never able to connect to my home computer.

Very buggy

Live stream never works. Disappointing that users have to make stream able versions of recorded files, even over LAN. Overall, could be a much better designed and implemented app.
