Elgato's Netstream stream digital TV wirelessly over a home network

German-based company Elgato is well known for its range of digital television tuners that turn a Mac (and more recently a Windows PC) into a fully-fledged PVR/TV as well as its easy-to-use EyeTV software that has become the standard for Mac-based PVR functionality.

They’re the first to do it and won’t be the last!  Read More
