EyeTV and Turbo264

Two products from Elgato, EyeTV lets you use your Mac as a PVR and Turbo264 massively speeds up video encoding to h.264. You’d expect them to work together beautifully but this is what I see every time I ask EyeTV to export a recording through Turbo264.

The last operation could not be completed because an error of type -536870176 occurred.

Such a shame that they can’t seem to make two of their own products work together. If only The Tube wasn’t so utterly terrible, maybe if there were a viable alternative to EyeTV, Elgato might get their act together.

I don’t know if this still happens with the new Turbo264 HD, but the fact that it might is putting me off buying one.
