EyeTV 3.1 update
Elgato has released an update to EyeTV 3, its Mac-based DVR software. Key to v3.1 is the addition of a TV Guide schedule for North America, which covers broadcasts up to 14 days in advance and provides associated cast, rating and genre information. A year of the schedule will be free for new and existing EyeTV 3 owners, but subsequent years will cost $20 each.
Elgato has also introduced a feature called the Smart Series Guide, which lets users schedule the recording of an entire series, filling in episode gaps whenever possible. The update lastly includes parental controls, which lets users censor their children's programming according to rating, or only allow access to particular channels. EyeTV 3.1 costs $80 new, and runs on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
