EyeTV Smart Guides

EyeTV Smart Guides

One of the new features in Elgato’s latest version of EyeTV 3 is a series link style system called ‘Smart Guide’. The system is not only particularly useful but it is also sophisticated enough to find missing episodes and ignore those you have already recorded.

[NOTE: I have noticed the first time you watch this video it plays fast. When it starts to appear hit pause and restart the video] YouTube Version.

The system has thrown me a couple of times as it is not obviously available from the main TV Guide view in EyeTV. If you click to record an episode and then try and add the Smart Guide the service almost appears hidden.

This 30 second guide serves as an easy to follow video tutorial on how to get the best from Smart Guide. You may need to pause the video or watch it a few times as it fast going.

The text boxes are a more pleasant alternative to a voice over but in time I will add a few more video tutorials and will venture into adding voice.

I have also decided to use the Vimeo video service for the tutorial rather than the traditional YouTube route. I don’t know if any of you have used this service but any  comments would be appreciated. I do think Vimeo video’s look sharper and have more embedding options. Perhaps there is a downside I haven’t discovered yet ?
