Elgato remakes digital and analog USB TV tuner

Elgato on Tuesday rolled out a redesigned version of the EyeTV Hybrid. The USB tuner is now considerably smaller than the old model and uses an aluminum shell that looks more appropriate plugged into the unibody MacBook Pro. It can still catch over-the-air ATSC broadcasts in HD and can take any unprotected analog or digital cable signals. An RCA input adapter is bundled and accepts input from old analog sources like VCRs.

The Hybrid comes bundled with EyeTV 3, which simultaneously provides DVR features and helps convert videos to a form usable in iTunes. Official Windows 7 support is new and extends both to the basic tuner as well as hooks for Windows Media Center. Those with iPads, iPhones and iPod touch players can load an app to watch live video streamed from a computer on the same local network.

Shipments have already started for the tuner, which should be available through the Apple Store and Elgato itself for $150.
