macOS Catalina is here and 32 bit programs are no longer supported. Some new software was not finished in time, eyeTV for example. But you can download a beta version of eyeTV 4 in the 64 bit version.

We tried it over the weekend. Nice: the new design looks fresh and yet not fashionable, we like it very much. What also works is the reception and the playback of TV streams. So you can watch a film in peace without having to deal with constant interruptions.

Watching TV works.

Of course you’ll still notice that it’s a beta version: The EPG overview is a bit shifted, stations sometimes can’t be renamed or sorted and when starting the program you are constantly asked for the system password. Nevertheless: if you need new software for your eyeTV and Geniatech hardware, you can install the public beta, which you can download here.

A software alternative for users of SAT>IP devices you can find here.

If you haven’t updated to Catalina yet, you might want to think about it due to the problems with Apple Mail and broken EFI chips and maybe be a bit more patient.
