LesC: I have a Mac Mini Core 2 Duo 2ghz and an EyeTV 250 Plus, both of which I bought a few weeks ago, and it works pretty well. TV 3 can be a bit juddery now and then but I this was improved with the latest release of EyeTV software to the point that it's almost unnoticeable. I understand this is just going to keep improving with new releases. The reason I went for the 250 plus is because it has hardware decoding instead of relying on the CPU. I'm also using the Elgato Turbo.264 to take the strain off the CPU when exporting to iTunes.
Actually, I've been made redundant since buying this gear and am in need of cash. So if anyone is interested in buying it let me know.

And you've changed the Guide service to none?
