Elgato Launches EyeTV Netstream DTT for LAN-based digital TV
Elgato has announced the new EyeTV Netstream DTT, an intelligent network dual TV tuner for DVB-T. EyeTV Netstream DTT streams digital television to all the Macs or PCs on a home network.

With the dual tuner, EyeTV Netstream DTT enables two people to watch and record different TV programmes at the same time.

Traditional USB 2.0 DVB-T receivers are susceptible to “dead spots”, so reception can never be optimal in every location within a room. EyeTV Netstream DTT solves this problem because as a network device, it does not have to be installed near your computers. Simply locate EyeTV Netstream DTT wherever you have a convenient antenna outlet or sufficient signal strength for the included telescopic antenna. Then connect it to your network router/switch and stream the live signal to the computers in your house. If you have a Wi-Fi network you can watch TV wirelessly on a portable computer, free from cables.

EyeTV Netstream DTT's auto-discovery feature (via UPnP & Bonjour) simplifies set-up. Tune EyeTV Netstream DTT once, and it stores channel list and serves it out to any Mac or PC on the network. Thanks to its dual tuners, two people can enjoy different TV programmes at the same time. EyeTV Netstream DTT operates seamlessly on multiple computers. The tuners are automatically allocated between computers as needed.

Included is EyeTV 3, Elgato’s own TV software for the Mac. Watch, record, edit and enjoy live television on your Mac. The software allows searching up to two weeks of Program Guide listings if available, and export recordings automatically to iTunes to sync with Apple devices.

EyeTV Netstream DTT works with Windows 7 Media Center and also includes TerraTec Home Cinema (THC TV) software for Windows, which offers many of the same features as EyeTV 3.

EyeTV Netstream DTT requires a Macintosh Computer with an Intel Core CPU and Mac OS X v10.5.8 or newer. On PCs or Netbooks EyeTV Netstream DTT requires Windows 7 and 2.0 GHz Intel/AMD CPU or Intel Atom CPU. Network bandwidth must be high enough to allow for streaming of television signals (100Base-T Ethernet, 802.11n for wireless).
