BETTER LIVE 3G STREAMING WITH THE TURBO.264 HD

When using the EyeTV app to stream live TV over a 3G connection to an iPad, we highly recommend that you connect the optional Elgato Turbo.264 HD hardware encoder/accelerator to your Mac. Turbo.264 HD gives you the best possible viewing experience and eliminates stuttering when your network connection gets weak; it automatically adjusts the bit rate of the video delivered to your iPhone and iPad whenever the connection signal fluctuates. This is especially valuable when streaming to the higher resolution screen of the iPad.

EYETV NETSTREAM SUPPORT

Connect EyeTV for iPhone directly to an EyeTV Netstream tuner to watch live TV on your iPad! Enjoy superfast channel surfing. This feature requires an iPad, iPhone 4, or iPod touch 4th generation running iOS4, and a local 802.11n Wi-Fi network. You need a Mac or PC to install EyeTV Netstream, but you don’t need to keep your computer turned on to watch live TV.

Note: Direct connection to EyeTV Netstream is available only for MPEG-2 standard definition television signals, and is not supported outside the local Wi-Fi network.

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY

The Live3G web app is a free, stripped-down version of the EyeTV app. It enables you to stream live television over a 3G connection in the Safari browser of your iPhone or iPad. It’s a good way to test your network’s compatibility before buying the EyeTV app. Make sure you turn on iPhone/iPad Sharing in EyeTV’s Preferences window first.

The free Live3G web app is available at live3g.eyetv.com.

NETWORK INFO:

On your local Wi-Fi network no configuration is needed, just turn on iPhone/iPad Sharing in EyeTV’s Preferences window. Fully automatic configuration isn’t always possible outside of your local network, please see www.elgato.com/iphonehelp for details.

If you are using the Mac OS X firewall, be sure to allow connections from both EyeTV and EyeConnect. EyeTV uses port 2170. If that doesn’t allow you to connect, try disabling the firewall temporarily.
