Hi , you would like to try SlingBox Hardware with the Sling media Software for iPad , i see its way much better in streaming ( No Loading ) in addition to the most Exciting Part which you can watch your tv on the road outside your house not using local network , you will love it , also its really easy to setup

there is an app called 'Telly' that does the same thing but on Windows.

@cadebonds Yes the Elgato software is Mac only.

Because the EyeTV only has one tuner, what you stream from your iPad would be what is streaming from your Mac. There isn't a way without multiple tuners, which I think you could now do with the HD Home Run that Elgato sells. Check that out if you want different streams on your ipAD and Mac.
When the live tv is "streaming" does it have to be playing on the Mac at the same time. I understand that the Mac has to be on, and I assume the software open, but are you getting simultaneous streams to both the iPad and Mac of the same thing. I ask, because I would like to use the iPad to watch TV in the B/R at night, but my computer is near the kid's rooms and I don't want to wake them up with sound of TV coming from my Mac.

I have the 250 as well. I haven't played with the HD, but seems like a decent solution for recording from a satellite box. I'm more than happy with recording my over the air content, have never really felt the need to record from my DirecTV box. Elgato v Slingbox depends on local vs streaming content. I would personally go with a Slingbox given the choice.

What kind of EyeTv device do you have? I have the 250 but Im thinking about getting the EyeTv HD for set top boxes. Do you think that is a good idea or should I go with a Slingbox HD pro?
Nelson Saenz
Yes a Mac is required as it is what tunes and records the live television.
do you need to have a mac? it dowsnt work only with Ipad?
Nelson Saenz
I don't have any experience with the Netstream. If you do buy one, let me know how you like it. I'm headed to Macworld today, will keep an eye out for it at the Elgato booth.
