"...Elgato's EyeTV Netstream DTT is a great option for both Mac and PC users... the installation and scope of the product is quite impressive"
... it works very well and is still easy to recommend.
Hooked up to a roof aerial and routed around the house, reception on a variety of desktops and laptops was exceptional, certainly better than streaming content online. Setup, despite initial fears, was simple and intuitive, helped by the user-friendly EyeTV 3 software and handy Assistant... No wires, no fuss and as long as you start with a solid signal, picture perfect reception anywhere.
I find this dual tuner a great way to get digital (Freeview) TV on your Mac. Especially when you have one of the 27 inch iMacs in one room and a MacBook for viewing wherever you are, Elgato’s Netstream tuner is an absolute topper.
Mac TV tuner veteran Elgato has delivered a superb dual-HD tuner solution that turns digital TV into a service that can be used anywhere in the house. It costs far less than a separate TV and PVR and - with capabilities like recording, format shifting, content sharing, streaming iPhone access and more - is an appealing alternative. Highly recommended.
We love the Elgato EyeTV Netstream DTT. It's not exactly cheap, but it's enabled us to watch telly in places where we otherwise wouldn't be able to. Cooking alongside Gordon Ramsay is no longer difficult, and lying in the bath watching Doctor Who has become much more viable. For geeks, it's a must-have little toy.
Netstream DTT comes with our highest recommendations.
Alan Stonebridge, MacUser magazine, Vol. 26 No. 7
... the Elgato Netstream has effectively made the rooftop aerial available to every room in the house, as long as there’s a computer in it.
Verdict: The most versatile Elgato TV tuner yet. Solid performance and amazing abilities.
"I've been toying with the idea of installing a TV and a Mac in my kitchen as home entertainment/communications hub but had been put off by the thought of having to route a TV cable and an ethernet cable to the middle of the kitchen. Now I can install a TV and a Mac mini in the middle of the kitchen and receive the TV signals over Wifi - brilliant!"
Fantastically easy to setup and use. High quality video streaming and recording. The most satisfying way to get TV on your laptop without wires.
It is hard not to get over excited about this device. The EyeTV Netstream DTT is set to revolutionise television home entertainment, it seamlessly integrates the full compliment of digital channels (including HD) to every computer on your home network yet is one of the easiest TV devices I have ever set up. Within ten minutes of opening the box your whole family can enjoy TV literally anywhere they have local network access.
It is genuinely hard to fault this device and better still it has just freed up a desperately need USB connection on my Mac.
