To get the programming on your Mac, you need to connect your unscrambled cable or an antenna to the eyetv module. There are some models that work with satellite and CATV receivers as well/

My decoder looks a lot like a USB type pen drive, this plugs into any USB port on the Mini. The Digital TV signal is sent via the TV company over the air and is picked up by an outside aerial on the roof, this is then cabled into the house and the cable plugs in to the USB adaptor.

Mine look a bit like this
