I think it is dead

Hi, I purchased the Elgato EyeTV "hybrid" back in May 2007. It was working great. As luck would have it, it came with a 90 day warranty. After 180 days it simply stopped working. on day for no apparant reason.

It appears completely dead, (ie. is not recognised by my apple iMac nor G5 Laptop. As there are no indicator lights, it is very difficult to determine if it is "burned" out, needs to be flashed in some way, etc etc.

Any idea what I can try, in terms of running diagnostics or determining if it is dead or not?

Thank you for any help

Re: I think it is dead

Interesting...My EyeTv hybrid was working fine for over the air transmissions until I hook it into a new Sat system.  It's now saying" No EyeTV Hybrid devices connected"  I connected to my Laptop and it worked fine.  I'm looking for a solution now to corrected the problem.  In the meantime try disconnection and maybe some patient restart.  I downlaod the latest software 2.5.2.  But still no solution yet

My cable broadband service went out, so AtlanticBB sent a technician. he found the problem on the roof and reconnected it. now the internet is fine, but when i attach a splitter and run the cable into my...

Most likely, the problem is simple.
I'm betting that you just need to get a splitter that will handle that much bandwidth say 2ghz or higher.
Alot of splitters only go to 1000 mhz, and that just isn't good enough anymore, 2 ghz is better, 5 ghz better still, if you can find one.
Maybe at BestBuy, or Fry's they might have one, they seem to have most every part needed for splitting cable signals.

Good luck to you.

Eye tv one is nog working on xp driver cannot be loadede code 39

To bad, people do not know the meaning of compatible, Elgato's eyetv one is windows compatible but does not work with XP or Vista. So it written for WINDOWS 7 only. Is there a driver for Windows XP?

Jammer dat niet iedereen de betekenis van compatible kent, Elgato's Eyetv one is windows 7 compatible maar werkt niet met XP of Vista. Volgens mij is het dan alleen geschreven voor WINDOWS 7. Is er een driver beschikbaar voor WINDOWS XP?

Elgato EyeTV (T5301LL/A) Video Capture: I have an old camcorder - with only a yellow video...

If you have just one Audio Out RCA jack then the camcorder only recorded in MONO, so all you would need to do is either plug the wire coming from your single Audio Out jack into the left or white input jack of your Capture Device which may have an option in the software program to set it to recieve audio in MONO, or you can buy a RCA Jack Splitter that goes from a single Female RCA jack on one end and 2 Male RCA Jacks on the other end. Then you take the end of the Splitter with 2 plugs and plug one of them into the White Jack and the other into the Red Jack on your Capture Device, and the other end with just one plug should plug into the cord coming from the Black Jack on your Camcorder.

Intermittent signal

No signal means that it does not have antenna input that it can decode (possibly too low). Try plugging it in right at your laptop to see if the extender is the problem, and go from there.
