EyeTV 500 brings HDTV solution to Mac OS X

Most excellent! The only thing missing here is the ability to capture from Cable or Satellite – Terrestrial signals only, which I can’t (and would not want to) do here in Apartment land.

Elgato today announced the release of EyeTV 500, the first high-definition television (HDTV) solution for Mac OS X. Designed especially for the North American digital terrestrial television (DTV) market. EyeTV 500, which costs US$349, allows users to watch, record, timeshift, edit and archive free over-the-air HDTV and digital standard-definition television (SDTV) on the Mac. It’s a FireWire-powered, 100 percent digital, HD capable solution. Elgato officials says that “with EyeTV 500, users can receive more than 20 HDTV and SDTV channels and enjoy exceptional viewing quality by taking advantage of the stunning Aqua user interface in Mac OS X.” [MacMinute]
