Software developer Elgato has announced the release of EyeTV for Apple’s iPhone and iPod touch handsets. The iPhone application lets Elgato EyeTV users view TV recordings wherever they are. EyeTV also gives users on the go control over remote recording, scheduling as well as providing a TV guide.
Per Macworld UK, the application requires a Wi-Fi connection for watching live TV on your iPhone or iPod touch.
EyeTV for iPhone connects to any Mac running the latest version of Elgato’s software, EyeTV 3.2, and will automatically find a Mac on the local network using Bonjour.
The application can also find and access a remote Mac via “My EyeTV”, a free locator utility introduced as part of the latest EyeTV 3.2 software update, which sets up any router that supports UPnP or NAT-PMP protocols automatically.
Users can manually configure their routers and/or use a dynamic DNS service.
The application is available from the Apple iTunes App Store EyeTV, retails for US$4.99 and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and an EyeTV 3.2 or higher TV tuner.
