Elgato ends collaboration with Miglia
Monday, March 12, 2007

Here is a bit of news that Mac HTPC enthusiast will find of interest. Elgato Systems today announced that it has terminated the licensing agreement for EyeTV software with Miglia Technology. According to the company, Miglia can no longer ship, sell or advertise TV Tuner solutions bundled with Elgato's EyeTV software. The company also notes that customers using EyeTV with a Miglia TV tuner product are not affected by this change. Elgato EyeTV will continue to work with existing Miglia products and the company will continue to support existing Miglia/EyeTV customers with software updates and improvements.

Very interesting. I would guess that it came down to money (big surprise). It's also possible that Elgato wants to distance itself from the competition by throwing its biggest competitor a hurdle. Miglia will need to go out now and develop its own software. This will take time and money. So that gives Elgato a huge advantage in market that is just heating up. Hell, I'm just mad that I bought the EyeTV 250 a few months before the Hybrid came out. That's the only thing I know for sure. Laughing

More than likely money was at play. Contract was up for renewal, neither side could come to a compromise, and voila- this is the result.

It's just business, but it sucks for the end users because you know that Elgato will, at some point in time, pull support for Miglia users (like the next major upgrade to EyeTV).
