Question about Elgato Systems Elgato EyeTV Hybrid - DVB-T receiver / analog TV tuner / video input adapter - Hi-Speed USB (EYETVHYBRID)

1 Answer

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

    It's not dead - I took mine back to the store and it worked on one of their machines.

    Returning home, I uninstalled all the elgato software (application
    support, plus preferences and ~/home/preferences), reinstalled and
    finally the laptop recognised the connection, _but_ only if I plug it
    into the one USB port.

    Any other port - no joy.

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

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?
