Great little utility for fast and easy switching between EyeTV and XBMC. Maybe it is less feature-rich than Remote Buddy, but it does its job good, and it is free.

Only sometimes when returning from XBMC back to EyeTV the app complains that it lost its exclusive access to the Apple Remote and I need to restart my Mac Mini. But it only happens once in a few days, and I don't know if it is a bug in EyeRemote, EyeTV or XMBC. Five stars app anyway!

Sorry but do not understand the benefit of this software. Please enlighten me.

If I start EyeTV in Full screen then I have complete control with the remote without any additional program.

Your completely right. But EyeRemote is for people :
- not satisfied with EyeTV menu (sometimes, you need many clicks to perform a simple task such as mute the sound)
- needing some features you can't find in EyeTV (especially a Sleep Timer, or display channel's logo)
- wanting access to channels list with only one remote-click (this is not possible with EyeTV)
- irritated with launching FrontRow because they did a short-press the menu button of their remote instead of a long-press (EyeRemote avoid this)
- wanting to customize the Apple Remote behavior (for example, I want the remote to control system volume instead of EyeTV volume…)
- wanting a sort of launcher, controllable with Apple Remote (and that means that you can launch EyeTV with your Apple Remote, otherwise it's not possible).

Question: Does it work well alongside Remote Buddy?

EyeRemote requires exclusive access to your Apple Remote so it will not work alongside RemoteBuddy or SofaControl. This is a way to replace original remote commands embedded into EyeTV.
