new iMac and EyeTV 2.3.2
A while back, I mentioned that I bought EyeTV for DTT. It was a great product allowing me to watch digital TV on my Mac.
The Picture-in-Picture (PiP) is interesting. I can two two recorded programmes in PiP mode, or one live TV and one recorded show. However according to this FAQ,
You must have a Live TV window and a recording window open, two Live TV windows or two recordings windows. Control+Shift+P or choose Picture in Picture from the View menu. This will enable PiP.It mentions "two Live TV windows". How do I open two live TV windows?
A brief report of EyeTV 2.3.2 on MacCentre701 is available.
To the topic of iMac, yes, I finally decided to get a new iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo) to replace my current Power Mac G4, bought in April 2004. At the time I bought it Power Mac G5 has already released. It was the top of line Power Mac G4, with dual G4 1.42 GHz, 2GB RAM. It is still a great machine, but it's getting slower.
I've been doing more video editing and converting recently, and Power Mac G4 is somehow getting slower. So I need a new Mac.
Actually, I wanted a compact machine, like the Mac mini. However, after some consideration, it's not powerful enough to suit my need. Mac mini is Core Duo up to 1.83 GHz, which I don't think it will keep me happy for long. Therefore I limited my choices to iMac. Benefits of iMac? It's Core 2 Duo, which means 64-bit, and it's faster (even at same clock speed) thanks to the faster HDD.
I've ordered it and it should be arrive in about two weeks time. (Ordering is slow in Australia, particularly if you do a build-to-order. Thanks to SillyDog701 members on helping me making a decision.
Disadvantage of an iMac? It's a lot heavier than then Mac mini. Hard to carry around.
