EveTV 3.0.2 update

Elgato has released the v3.0.2 update to EyeTV, its TV streaming and recording software. The patch makes significant changes, most crucially support for broadcasts with H.264 compression, which are said to be increasingly popular; in Europe, for example, a number of DVB-T channels offer only H.264 streaming. Elgato has also introduced the export of closed captions to QuickTime videos, in particular text broadcast over ATSC and NTSC. As a result, users can now toggle captions on and off in software ranging from iTunes to the iPhone OS.

Other changes include bug fixes, selectable audio tracks, more legible on-screen menus, and an identifier badge for unplayed recordings in the thumbnail view. Hardware support, meanwhile, has been expanded to encompass devices such as Digital Everywhere's FireWire tuners. EyeTV costs $80, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later along with a TV tuner.
