EyeTV, the OS X DVR software and television tuning/encoding hardware provider, receives a companion iPhone app today. The $5 EyeTV for iPhone (iTunes link) provides access to both live and recorded content originating from your Mac, which needs to be running the new EyeTV 3.2 update. While a prior iteration of EyeTV enabled local streaming of recorded shows around the home, these new features are supplemented by router configuration and an EyeTV dynamic DNS service for a true worldwide placeshifting experience – including access to live television.
Given my current OTA situation (Antennas Direct to the rescue?), Cox’s near total clear QAM lockdown, and the fact that my primary Mac is a laptop, I can’t really put the WiFi-only app to use. Not to mention, I’ve been hoping for more OS X EyeTV software refinements which could allow a Mac Mini, supplemented by Front Row and Boxee, to be used as a full time HTPC.
