EyeTV EPG Proxy fills the need for EPG data for users in certain countries, and it's free.

Background: EyeTV is a DVR software for Mac OS X, with support for EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) in many countries. Unfortunately, EPG data is not available at all in some countries (Canada, for example), or it is available only via a paid subscription (tvtv for European countries, for example).

How does it work: Basically, it acts as a proxy between EyeTV and the real EPG data source (Zap2It or XMLTV). Traffic is redirected from EyeTV to your personnal Web server, on which PHP scripts will answer with data that EyeTV can more...

Version 0.9.12: Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated.


  • Mac OS X 10.4 or later
  • EyeTV 2 or later

I bought a TvMax unit, and was about to return it to the vendor. I really couldn't find a solution to allow me to use my Mac to record programs as I used my PC prior to my conversion. Thank you for an awesome program.

Could we have a list of countries serviced please before we download this (not small) file?

Works great- very nice to have the schedule in EyeTV for Canada. Quite simple installation considering the hoops that the author had to work through.

If your TV provider is supported by XMLTV, then yes, probably.
I know some Australian users of XMLTV have issues with Over the Air digital (DVB), but if you use standard cable or such, I don't think there will be any problem.

Woo Hoo! WoW!!
This is simply amazing and never thought I could ever use the EyeTV guide. EyeTV said one day they will have support for Canada... but would never commit to a timeframe. It appears that most TV service charges a premium for this ability if its a commercial ware company.

There some minor quirks in the documents that needs fixing.

- Your referral url for installation steps need to be changed.

- There a addition you need to add in the channels lineup for those who do not customize the channel list. Once the list is up for viewing you have to select each channel in the EPG Column to TitanTV otherwise eyeTV doesn't even know the channels exist. I figure that out after I read the alert error in eyeTV.

Great Job and a heartful thanks!

Thank you for your feedback.
I'll be publishing a 0.9.1 version which fixes the URL in the ReadMe (and Installer) and the directory permission to make config.inc.php easier to edit.
I'll add an additional step in the EyeTV instructions about the channels, indeed.
Thanks again,

Absolutely amazing!!! I never could have imagined that it could be so easy for us Canadians to have EPG support! Now I know what we've been missing all of this time.

The installation process is very simple, with step by step instructions laid out. It only took a couple of minutes, and now I have a perfectly working EPG!!!

Wonderful job Guillaume, and thank you for making this publicly available for free. No need to call it 0.9--- should be 1.0 in my books.
