Elgato has today released version 1.1 of its EyeTV app for iPhone, which now brings live TV streaming over Wi-Fi or 3G to the iPad. Elegato has optimised the app to take advantage of the iPadâ€™s bigger, high-resolution screen and its superior video playback capabilities.
The app works in conjunction with the userâ€™s Mac at home to stream high-quality live or recorded TV anywhere. It also provides full access to EyeTVâ€™s program guide, which includes the ability to remotely schedule upcoming shows to record.
If used on a local Wi-Fi network the EyeTV app will work immediately without any need to configure it. When used anywhere else, Elgatoâ€™s free â€œMy EyeTVâ€ locator service will automatically find the path to your Mac back at home.
To use EyeTV, you must have a Mac computer running EyeTV 3.4 and configured with a compatible TV tuner device. Streaming live TV requires an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
You can download the app now from the Apple iTunes app store for $4.99.
