View Full Version : EyeTV only Wakes up and Records Sometimes

I have a strange problem with EyeTV software on my iMac G5. I have 2 EyeTV recorders, EyeTV for DTT (T2) and an EyeTV Hybrid. The problem I am having, is that EyeTV will only wake my iMac up from sleep to record programs some of the time. My problem may be related to have 2 different EyeTV units, but I wasn't having any problems with EyeTV 2.3.2, only when updating to 2.4.1. I have since tried reverting back to 2.3.2 but the problems still exist.

I find that if I want to schedule a recording between 20:00 and 22:00 on any night, my iMac does not wake up and record it. If the iMac is not sleeping during this time, then it will record.

I have an IceTV account and I have tried to use the PIMP service. I find that anything that I have chosen to record from the IceTV guide directly or through PIMP won't record. My iMac refuses to wake up and record; it is as if I never set up these programs to record. The only way I can have something record is to to go into the schedules section and manually set a station and time for what I want to record. This method only works for programs that start before 20:00.

I find this all very odd and have deleted EyeTV and reinstalled to no avail. Short of tearing my hair out, I think I will just reinstall OSX and a fresh EyeTV (somewhere around 2.3.2) instead of 2.4.1.

Has anyone else been having problems with EyeTV and multiple recorders? I would say that since 10.4.9 and EyeTV 2.4.X, that my EyeTV experience has become more random and buggy.

Sorry but, there appears to be an inherent problem with iMac G5s and USB Eyetv compatibility. Have a look through this thread and contact Elagato to log your problem. They may have worked out an answer by now.
