Bought it some years ago.
2 updates since then. OS X got more updates in the same time.
Never really worked, always shows errors while watching a streamed movie on the PS3. Some movies only play with extreme stuttering.
TOO expensive, it's better to buy Media Link or load PS 3 Media Server for free.

New version by the way is not working.
But with every restart of the Mac eyeconnect automatically starts, even if it is stopped, and forces Media Link to stop.
Overpriced piece of crap.

At last this piece of sh*t is cancelled. I'm still angry about myself that I bought this for too much money and it never worked properly. Cheaper apps had more support than eyecan'tconnect.

EyeConnect installed itself with EyeTV. I have never used it.

But I recently discovered that it launches a process on restart and just sits there using over 400MB of physical memory. God knows how many beachballs I've sat through because of it over the years.

Absolutely obscene that Elgato produce this memory leaking rubbish and decide that every user wants to run it all day long.

Here's how to permanently rid yourself of it:

The price tag is ridiculous. And it doesn’t even read Aperture libraries. The only good thing is the small memory footprint.

Fortunately I discovered a competing product (from Yazsoft) that is able to read all my libraries, plus other features, at a fraction of the price.

I trialled this to see if I could stream live tv from EyeTV to my PS3. Nope that doesn't work, I guess they want you to buy their HomeRun product as well.

It is a pitty cause EyeConnect pretends to be able to interface with iPhoto, but despite the support provided by Elgato, I never managed to have it working with my Media Tank nor with my Samsung C6000 TV ! Photos from iPhoto desperatly don't want to appear !

Yes, EyeTV 3 itself. As long as a copy is on each Mac, you can stream recordings between them.

EyeConnect is a easy to use MediaCenter for OSX. It supports many diffrent devices like Sony's PS3. Unfortunatly PS3 support is not very stable at the moment.

The only issue here is the price 49,95$ is way too expensive and absolutly not worth the software. If you're looking for a better MediaCenter then try MediaLink witch is only 20$.

An an alternativ you can also try Twonky Media.

This is an Ok program, i like that it is a Pref Pane and not an application, this seems to keep it more accessible for the UPnP player to access (I seem to quit application based servers by accident).

I also like that it can access all files on the Mac and not just those in the User folder, this is the main problem with the software that came with my device.

Stability is good, no freezing issues when navigating or loading files.

GUI on the TV is pretty plain (that's common), generic blue background no icons, shows a good number of lines. Navigation is quicker and more responsive than some other servers too.

Bad Points - doesn't play FLACs and it is a tad expensive (€50).

At that price I'll wait and see what happens with this program over the next 6-12 months, hopefully the developers will realise that there is an opportunity here to become THE UPnP server on the Mac if they do it right.
