At Last: Digital Radio on the Mac

Elgato have updated their EyeTV software to version 1.8.3. As well as close integration with the excellent new Toast 7 there is now official support for DVB Digital radio.

This is great news in the UK where the radio transmissions on Freeview are higher quality than those on DAB Digital Radio, especially since the release of the nifty EyeTV for DTT a low cost portable DVB receiver that draws its power from the Mac’s USB port.

Sadly for me, both Toast 7 and EyeTV want a G4 minimum, so until I upgrade the G3 I can only sit here and salivate.

  1. Looks lovely! But how good is the aerial? Won’t it be a lot worse than a roof-mounted one & therefore a big limiting factor on quality?

  2. The EyeTV for DTT? I’ve read a few reports that the aerial is useless, but that’s fine, you can plug in your roof-mounted one and get lovely BBC7 at 160kbs down that. EyeTV has a direct “export to iTunes” option too. I really need a G4 mac.
