Does anyone have suggestions for viewing broadcast and/or cable television on a Macintosh? Sort of looking for a way to cut the cable company out... or, at least get rid of regular TV sets. Thanks for your advise!<br><br>
How are you going to get television fed to your Macintosh? Is there another way other than Cable, DirecTV/DISH or antenna on the roof? Just curious.<br><br>I could do away with my TV set and view via a Macintosh using EyeTV. But I must get the signal via DirecTV dish on my home.<br><br>http://www.elgato.com/<br><br><br><br>KateMate

The site Kate linked to has several devices that will do what you want, which is eliminate a TV set. According to their site, you can even connect an antenna and eliminate the cable company too, but then you're limited to local channels only.<br><br>
The only way I am aware of getting a TV signal to a computer is via cable, off the air channels via antenna, satellite dish, etc.<br><br>You do that thru a device such as EyeTV.<br><br>You can connect your antenna on top of your house via tv wire to the eyetv set which is connected to your Macintosh / PC.<br><br>I know of NO other way of capturing TV signals free without the aid of the above-mentioned devices. But if there are any, I'd sure like to read about them. Maybe Carnac has the answer . . . oops . . . he died didn't he . . . ??<br><br>KateMate
