This plugin allows access to EyeTV from within Front Row on (Snow) Leopard, adding a EyeTV item to Front Row's top level menu. The plugin gives access to EyeTV's recordings (grouped by series), along with an image preview and recording metadata.

Abandoned project page still available here.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

PyeTV also integrates with ETVComskip, a Mac OS X port of comskip designed to work with EyeTV. ETVComskip allows users of EyeTV to enjoy commercial-free recorded television. PyeTV provides capabilities of turning commercial skipping on and off from within Front Row, as well as starting a commercial search for recordings which do not have commercial markers already. You will have to install ETVComskip separately if you want this functionality.

The 10.6.2 update to Snow Leopard broke the usage of the Apple remote to control EyeTV. Until there is an update to EyeTV, the default remote driver will not work. The work around I've found us to install the Candler driver, and enable Leopard combatibility mode in the corresponding preference pane.

If anyone has them, please upload the final PowerPC versions of Candler and ETVComskip. According to this and this, 1.2 (14.11.2010) is the final PPC version of Candler. For ETVComskip the last PPC version appears to be 1.0.3 at least according to this. Interestingly the newer "ports" are just the Windows version WINE wrapped.
