Elgato ships EyeTV for iPhone

Elgato has introduced an App for streaming TV recordings from a Mac to an iPhone or iPod touch, EyeTV for iPhone.

The software means users of the Elgato EyeTV TV tuner family of devices can view their show recordings wherever they are around their home using a WiFi network. Better still, they can also control their TV tuner, setting it up for remote recording, scheduling as well as providing a TV guide.

The app connects to any Mac running the latest version of Elgato’s software, EyeTV 3.2, and will automatically locate a Mac on the local network using Bonjour.

The software also supports remote streaming, accessing your remote Mac using free locator utility, ‘My EyeTV’, which was made available within EyeTV 3.2. This automatically sets up any router that supports UPnP or NAT-PMP protocols.

EyeTV requires the iPhone Software Update or later and EyeTV 3.2 or higher.
