Review: Elgato EyeTV Netstream DTT

I hate making sure I have them with me, plugging them in when I want to watch TV and having them stick out of my Mac waiting to be damaged. So when I was given the Elgato EyeTV Netstream DTT to review I thought that this may be the answer to all my problems. The Netstream is a Twin HD TV tuner that sits on your network allowing you to stream TV to your PCs without the need for any USB dongles.

It also comes with the EyeTV software allowing you to schedule and record TV. The software will also convert recordings for iPod, Apple TV and Toast for burning. In the box you get the Netstream which is a lot smaller than I was first expecting. Setting up the hardware is a breeze. The second thing to note is network speed. Installing the EyeTV software and configuring the Netstream is as easy as setting up the hardware.
