CyTV is a streaming solution for elgato's EyeTV family of TV tuners. It allows you to watch TV and recorded programs over a local network (wired or wireless) or the internet, and it supports EyeTV USB, 200, 300, and 400. EyeTV 410, 610, and Plextor's ConvertX (PX-TV402U) should also work. You can pause and resume live TV on the client ("timeshift"), and you can also change channels remotely.
What's New
Version 0.6-pre5:
  • Fixed a problem that prevented the client from connecting via Rendezvous/Bonjour on Intel Macs.
  • Fixed several transcoding problems (including crashes, not receiving audio and/or video, and lip sync issues).

Has worked in the past but my current setup won't work with it.
1.5Ghz G4 Mac Mini running 10.5.8 = Server
2x2Ghz Dual-Core Intel running 10.5.6 and VLC 1.0.1 = Client

Client machine can connect to CyTV server and all recorded tv shows come up in the list, but when double clicking on them, VLC doesn't open the streams? Also, nothing happens when i click the Live button.
Maybe the versions of CyTV and VLC i have don't work together?
Or could this be a Intel V's PowerPC problem?
Any ideas anyone?

I have now used this software since september on a refugular basis... It has enabled me to watch hockey games live while being 6000 km away! This must be the most effective and easy solution to permit this type of streaming... And it's free!

Excellent.

Streaming over 802.11b network to slow 400MHz laptop at extreme range (two lines on wireless icon), through 3 or 4 brick walls.

cy-tv just gets better and better.

interesting that you say this...I have an old Clamshell iBook with a 466mhz processor, do you think I could make it work?

Really what I was looking for. On my Server in the cellar ist EyeTV and makes recordings, in the living room I watch TV and use EyeHome and in my working rooms I can watch while i am doing my work.

It really works now. This is great. Thanks !
(however, the client interface needs some polish!)
