EyeTV SDK released
has released a system development kit (SDK) for developing plug-ins to extend the functionality of the EyeTV software. With the new functionality of EyeTV's plug-in interface, the EyeTV software gives third parties access to the raw incoming MPEG-2 transport stream packet data. A plug-in receives device plugged and unplugged notifications, it can request or release individual PIDs within the MPEG-2 transport stream, and most importantly, it has access to transport stream packets in real time, as they arrive from the device.
