Elgato ships EyeTV 250

Elgato today launched the EyeTV 250, a TV receiver/recorder and video converter for analog TV. Users can watch, pause, and rewind live television on their Macs. The unit supports recording and editing of TV shows, and offers the ability to find programs or schedule recording using the built-in electronic program guide (EPG). The device can create playlists to manage recordings, and can export complete episodes to Apple's video iPod. EyeTV 250's built-in hardware encoder compresses audio and video signals to MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 formats, freeing up the Mac's processor for other activities. The device measures 4 x 2.5 x 1-inches, and weighs less than half a pound. Elgato's EyeTV 250 ships with the receiver/recorder, EyeTV software, an infrared remote control with a battery pack, the power cord/adapter, a USB cable, a break out cable, and a quick start guide for $200 from the Apple online store.
