Sonic unveils EyeTV 250

Sonic today unveiled the EyeTV 250, a TV tuner for Mac systems that resembles Apple's Mac mini. The device features a built-in analog tuner, connecting to its host via USB 2.0 to support TV viewing as well as recording on a Mac. The EyeTV 250 features Internet Electronic Program Guide capability, allowing users to program recording sessions with additional support for hardware encoding to record content real-time in MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 format without additional load on the Mac, according to Newlaunches.com. Users can also convert recorded programs to MPEG-4 in one click for playback on Apple's video iPod, and the device ships with Toast 7 Titanium CD/DVD burning software. The EyeTV 250 is slated for shipment in Japan on October 6th for $260.

    Sonic or Elgato?

    I don't get this. Elgato makes the EyeTV 250, so is this a typo, did Sonic buy Elgato and release a previously released product, or what?

    Not a New Product

    Ummm, this is the El Gato EyeTV 250. And it's been out for several months. http://www.elgato.com/index.php?file=products_eyetv250

    And I have one. Nothing new here.

    Japan version

    Actually, it's just the Japan version of the ElGato product, rebranded by Sonic. Hopefully they'll support it better than Roxio did for the EyeTV 200

    Re: not new

    I had a 250, but returned it. I just was not thrilled with the video quality, and then they announced the hybrid, which will take over-the-air HD content, so back it went.

    sponsored story?

    Since this is a product that's been available for months, I'm left to guess that this story is a paid advertisement from Sonic. The line between journalism & advertising is so fuzzy these days...

    Re: sponsored story

    Nah, its just probably MacNN got a Press Release and shoved it up on the site. That's what Press Releases are for, you know, to release info to the press.
