A perfect fit for your Mac

Watch, record, edit, and enjoy TV on a Mac or PC with EyeTV Go, an incredibly tiny digital TV tuner. EyeTV Go delivers powerful DVB-T (DTT or Freeview) reception, cutting-edge technology, clean design, and extreme portability in one diminutive device.

Barely larger than a USB connector, EyeTV Go is a perfect fit for any Mac or PC. EyeTV Go slips easily into the USB port without blocking other devices.

Superb Quality Television, including HDTV

Despite its extraordinary size, EyeTV Go is a powerful digital TV tuner that delivers full-size, crystal-clear reception and uncompromising quality. In areas in which high-definition television is broadcast via DVB-T, experience stunning 720p or 1080iHDTV, in MPEG-2 and H.264/AVC.

EyeTV Go has one quality setting, Lossless. The DVB stream is recorded unaltered to give you the full quality MPEG-2/H.264 file as encoded by the broadcaster. EyeTV supports DVB-T multilingual programming and Dolby® Digital sound.

(Freeview HD or DVB-T2 is not supported.)

Options for Aerial Reception

Beautifully designed, EyeTV Go comes with a variety of options for aerial reception. The miniature telescopic aerial attaches neatly to the end of the TV stick without wires or cables, and a larger portable rod antenna is also included as an alternative.

EyeTV Go’s included telescopic aerial and rod antenna are primarily intended for use in areas in which DVB-T broadcasting stations emit enough power for portable DVB-T reception. If necessary, the included IEC-MCX adapter may also be used to connect any type of active aerial that has an independent power source, or with a passive aerial such as a rooftop aerial.

TV Software for Mac
The included EyeTV 3 software by Elgato will turn your Mac into the coolest TV and DVR in the house. This award-winning software enables you to:
• Watch, pause, and rewind live TV on your Mac
• Set up schedules to record your favourite TV programmes
• Edit out unwanted content
• Share recordings with other Macs on the same network

EyeTV 3 software offers special features for Mac users, including Smart Series Guides, Smart Playlists, automatic exports to iTunes, and support for the EyeTV for iPhone app.

Windows PC Compatibility

You can use EyeTV Go with a Mac or PC. EyeTV Go is compatible with Windows 7 or later and includes THC software for Windows, which supports many of the same features as EyeTV 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent – Thank You Maplin :-) works great for me – and I'm in a blackspot with difficult reception. I am using the recommended magnetic antenna with extended cable for my circumstances. NB: Once you get past the 'No Channels" window on the installer, click "next" for the auto-tune window. This enables the tuner to scan for local country area channels. Remember, the tuner must be configured first to enable reception e.g. within Ireland.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubish! I bought this product and downloaded the software and did auto-tune and no channels even outside in the open. £50 wasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I stay at work regularly in accommodation with no TV and very little mobile phone signal. This device has worked flawlessly using both the included aerial and the adaptor with a suitable RF cable. The only downside is it appears to need re-tuning after I move location (i.e. DTV region) but once tuned in it works great!

Will this device work overseas? My daughter lives in Switzerland so wondered what TV she would pick up there? Thanks, Paul.
Asked by: Paul
EyeTV Go is intended for use in countries where digital terrestrial television is broadcast. Digital terrestrial television is also known as DVB-T, DTT, Freeview in the UK, and TNT in France. DVB-T reception can vary by location, and a rooftop aerial may be required in areas with a weak or obstructed DVB-T signal.
