Hi there,

Is anyone here running Freeview DVB-S on their Intel Mac?  If so what tuner are you using?  If not, does anyone have any idea which tuner would work?

Looking to plug a direct coax cable from my Sky dish into the tuner, the cable is coming off a splitter which is providing two tuners in the lounge HTPC as well. 

Any ideas?

Elgato's EyeTV Hybrid.

You can find it at any Apple reseller. (I know Magnum Mac has them on stock)

Sorry, thought you wanted DVB-T, not DVB-S.

Elgato does some other versions, and there is one called EyeTV 310, but I have never seen it in NZ.
