Elgato today announced the new EyeTV Netstream DTT, an intelligent network dual TV tuner for DVB-T. EyeTV Netstream DTT streams digital television (DVB-T/Freeview) to all the Macs or PCs on your home network. A dual tuner, EyeTV Netstream DTT
enables two people to watch and record different TV programmes at the
same time. Setup is easy, thanks to built-in support for Bonjour and
UPnP. EyeTV Netstream DTT comes with EyeTV
3, Elgato’s award-winning Mac TV software. It also works with Windows 7
Media Center and ships with TerraTec Home Cinema (THC) software for Windows. EyeTV Netstream DTT is available immediately at a price of 249.95 Euro.
Superb quality TV, location-independent
Traditional USB 2.0 DVB-T
receivers are susceptible to “dead spots”, so reception can never be
optimal in every location within a room. EyeTV Netstream DTT solves this problem; as a network device, it does not have to be installed near your computers. Simply locate EyeTV Netstream DTT
wherever you have a convenient antenna outlet or sufficient signal
strength for the included telescopic antenna. Then connect it to your
your network router/switch and stream the live signal to the computers
in your house. If you have a Wi-Fi network you can watch TV wirelessly
on a portable computer, free from cables.
An intelligent device
EyeTV Netstream DTT’s auto-discovery feature (via UPnP & Bonjour) simplifies set-up. Tune EyeTV Netstream DTT
once, and it stores channel list and serves it out to any Mac or PC on
the network. Thanks to its dual tuners, two people can enjoy different
TV programmes at the same time. EyeTV Netstream DTT operates seamlessly on multiple computers. The tuners are automatically allocated between computers as needed.
Works great on Macs and PCs
Included is EyeTV 3, Elgato’s award-winning TV software for the Mac.
Watch, record, edit and enjoy live television on your Mac. Search two
weeks of Program Guide listings, and export recordings automatically to
iTunes to sync with Apple devices. EyeTV Netstream DTT works with Windows 7 Media Center and also includes THC software for Windows, which offers many of the same features as EyeTV 3.
EyeTV Netstream DTT requires a Macintosh Computer with an Intel Core CPU and Mac OS X v10.5.8 or newer. On PCs or Netbooks EyeTV Netstream DTT requires Windows 7 and 2.0 GHz Intel/AMD CPU or Intel Atom CPU. Network bandwidth must be high enough to allow for streaming of television signals (100Base-T Ethernet, 802.11n for wireless).
