I can download this file but when it opens the dmg file it just throws open a window and sticks my machine and I have to restart. I have tried downloading several times but it just keeps doing the same.

I will probably just open my older version of this application and let the software detect an update.

Is this happening to anyone else?
Does anyone have the EvolutionTV - it lacks any divx editing and specified capture settings - there is just two options portable and home theatre. There should be a specified option and the ability to clip the video image of black edges.

Buggy Software, sort of UB, bad documentation, poor testing by manufacturer: stay away!

MacIntel owners be notified: Evolution TV application v2.7 is not fully functional on Intel machines. I have a 17" MBP and had lots of difficulties.

Despite claims and descriptions that say it is a universal binary, some features do not work. Installation was not clear thanks to old documentation. Had to install and uninstall 3 times until all plugins were installed. The bundled MovieGate plug-in v1.0.2 (also claimed to be a UB) definitely does not work. It kept telling me my MPEG-2 recordings were Divx or MPEG-4 recordings and rejecting them, and refusing to burn a DVD. Migilia customer support told me I must be doing something wrong because they had no problems. 10 days later they admitted they did their tests on a PPC. That was 2 weeks ago and they still haven't updated the software or reduced the claims of what this product can do. Perhaps Apple is buying them up and that's why they don't want to take the trouble to fix their claims.


Clicking inside of software while recording can lead to app crashing.
Sometimes app had errors while recording.
Out-of-date documentation. Follow the installer, not the manual.

Only a combination of 2 new beta elements, resulted in being able to burn a DVD from the app. Unless you like having to beta test the products you pay for STAY AWAY.
