EyeTV 1.0.1 Plugs 3G Streaming Hole, More

| Product News

Elgato's EyeTV 1.0.1 for the iPhone finally appeared on Apple's App store on Tuesday with the promised fix that prevents live TV streaming over 3G. The update also fixed bugs and improved overall performance.

The 1.0.1 update fixed an issue where audio continued to play after leaving Live TV mode, fixed crashes related to changing channels and zooming, added DVB and ATSC programming guides, accepts iPod Best variants when streaming to the iPhone, and more.

The EyeTV app temporarily disappeared from the App Store over the weekend because it included code that let users stream live TV shows over 3G.

"Some test code that enabled live TV streaming over the cellular network was accidentally left in the the EyeTV App," David Fanning, Elgato's press contact, told The Mac Observer. "Apple requested that we remove the code since their agreement with AT&T does not allow redirecting TV signals over the cellular network."

Elgato submitted a version 1.0.1 update to Apple without the test code on Saturday, and by Sunday EyeTV was available at the App Store again. The version number for the app, however, was still listed at 1.0. The application was available at the App Store for about a month before it was pulled.
