CyTV Streams TV

I don’t have the EyeTV hardware to test, but still like what this does a great deal…

CyTV is a streaming solution for elgato’s EyeTV family of TV tuners. It allows you to watch TV and recorded programs over a local network (wired or wireless) or the internet, and it supports EyeTV USB, 200, 300, and 400. You can pause and resume live TV on the client (“timeshift”), and you can also change channels remotely.

The CyTV Server requires a Mac with an EyeTV unit. On the client(s), you can use the VideoLAN Client (VLC) media player to play the stream, so you can watch on any platform supported by VLC (and there are many!). The distribution also contains a special client application for Macs that gives you more control (like watching previous recordings, skipping back and forth, etc.). [CyTV]
