4.0 out of 5 stars Works Fantasticly, but Not REALLY for Mobile Use, March 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EyeTV Hybrid (2010) - Hybrid TV tuner stick for Mac & PC (Personal Computers)
This device is meant for picking up over the air cable channels. Since cable stations went away with analog over the air signals, you can only hope to pick up digital signals, which requires an antenna. The device's compactness makes it seem like it would be ideal for mobile use; however, without some sort of antenna (like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007MXZB2/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_40), you won't pick up many channels, if any. Because of this, you can expect to only use it at your desktop. It works great in this manner, except that it's a bit cumbersome with cables plugged into it. Ultimately, you might as well get its big brother (EyeTV HD -[...]), so long as you have a cable or satellite receiver already. No matter what product you go with, the included software is superb. With the addition of a TV guide subscription, you easily have a DVR built into your Mac. Another cool thing is you can also plugg into something like an X-Box or Playstation and play your games on your Mac's screen as well. The remote that comes with either is okay, but could be better.
