I wonder if the EyeTV500 uses the full length of the component. Perhaps I can get an empty drive stack and put it inside one of those. It would be nice if everything all matched. But then I would be 4 tall... hmmm

Dunno for sure, but if the Miglia / Elgato TVmini HD is any indication, then I'd say it's definitely smaller than the case its inside
(the EyeTV 500 and TVmini HD seem to share the same remote control).

I went to order mine today, and it appears they are all out of them. The page still works but you can't add the item to the cart.

Looks like there is new Elgato hardware on the horizon:

Elgato EyeTV 250

I don't see it on the Elgato site yet, though. Weird.

I saw one on e-bay as well. Here's the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8786589163&category=171

They provide a little more insite to the product. "Logical Sucessor to the EyeTV 200". I think the main advantage ius that its 4.09x2.52x1.14

I have had the following setup for a few weeks now and am in awe my mini. (my first apple computer)

1.67 Duo Mini
EyeTV 500
NewerTech miniStack V2
generic 17in LCD

Within minutes of opening the eyeTV box, I was watching and recording 1080i/720p HTDV on my mac. The quality is absolutly stunning as is the easy of operation.

here's the cable setup:
mini <-firewire- NewerTech miniStack V2 <-firewire EyeTV 500

My next purchase was Toast 7 Titanium, which integrates with eyeTV sooo nicely. Here's my senario for LOST episodes:
1) use eyeTV to record lost (1-click)
2) after the shows over, I spend no more than 3-5 minutes in eyeTV removing the commercials (sooo easy) and click compact.
3) ~3min. its finished, and I insurt a blank dvd-r and click the Toast icon (1-click)
4) Toast opens, asks for a disc name, then I click burn. (really, its that easy)
5) sleep or do laundry now..the encode&burn takes a while.
6) show off PERFECT DVD of LOST to friends. (trust me, WAY better than torrent/p2p quality)

Note that I haven't tried putting a collection of episodes onto a disc (like the retail dvd seasons do... but it can't be that hard)

Feel free to ask any questions or post your experiences. This setup is blowing my mind!
