Elgato EyeTV HD DVR Leans On Macs (and Plays Nice With iPads)

Gizmodo: "The Elgato EyeTV HD DVR has one noble aim: making it as easy as possible to watch your HD cable or satellite TV content, including premium channels, on your MacBooks, iMacs, iPhones and iPads. But it'll cost you a leash.

The DVR has component inputs for HD sources—as well as S-Video and composite cables for standard def ones—and plugging it into your satellite or cable box will let you records shows and movies in full HD, H.264 video. But the EyeTV isn't only a metaphorical bridge between your computer room and living room; it's unfortunately a physical one, too, depending on your cable box for a TV tuner and your Mac for a hard drive."
