"In just a few minutes, you will receive an e-mail that provides the link to the private download page where you can get your free 30-day trial of FileMaker Pro."

Well I waited and waited and waited. Several hours later nothing so I tried again - same thing. Any correspondence I receive from FileMaker will now be deleted and advertising reported as spam. Bye

0.9.3 hasn't been very successful for me. Decrypting DVDs with files from VLC Player gives really poor results. Encoding mpeg content from EyeTV produces scratchy sound.

I'd like to try it but the download is too slow and continually times out. Same for the users manual.

I do like FontDoctor and have used it on and off for years. However I see the latest version 7.5.1 still has that nasty tendency to unexpectedly quit when trying to "fix" problems - on a large file that means starting again and narrowing the search and as such can be very time consuming.

I'm not able to watch BBC News with this release - SOCKS errors. The previous version works fine though.

It's a beautiful design with excellent GUI. The logging feature doesn't run nicely though and can interfere with normal operation of my computer. Strange thing is, even with logging disabled, whenever CleanApp has been opened, All Messages in Console becomes blank - i have to restart to get it running again.

New Movie Recording from Quicktime using iSight on a brand new MacPro failed after installing Audio Hijack. I had to remove the instant hi-jack plug-in and reinstall Quicktime to get it working again. OSX 10.5.2

It would be nice if Elgato's website actually worked. When I try to purchase the upgrade, i'm forced to register (again, it doesn't recognise my old login) then complains about an order error because it tries to proceed without asking for any credit card info.

Ok this aside, I fail to see what makes this software a big figure version hike (other than to extract more cash). Given Elgato's European roots it still supports only the US preferred MPEG-2 HD which in Europe is considered the poor relation to MPEG-4 HD as employed for example by the BBC HD. Over 1 year ago Elgato promised MPEG-4 HD support was a priority. It didn't happen.

Thank you for contacting Elgato Systems. Your analysis is correct. See this article:

EyeTV should be updated to play H.264 relatively soon. A guess (not an offical statement) would be in the first half of 2007, but I can't say for certain at this time.

This is one of our priorities for future development. The main issue is that QuickTime isn't suitable for this, so we would have to provide our own playback engine. We use our own engine for all the files we receive.

DivX (Pro package) Player crashes after a short while opened on a clean install of Leopard (Macbook Pro OSX 10.5). Anyone else?
