5 out of 5 eggsWonderful tool

Pros: Does exactly what it says it does. Time shifting, TV Guide, recording and converting, it does it all easily without stutter. Picture clarity is fabulous and the 1080i is stunning on the 27" iMac screen. There is only the briefest lag to stream live tv to the iPad. Changing channels works flawlessly and fairly quickly when you get the IR blaster correctly positioned. So if you are having trouble try shifting the blaster's position.

Cons: It would be better if you could change the port. Setup could be described better. You must reboot before it will stream to iPad/iPhone and the instructions do not tell you that. Although these are irritating there is no reason to remove a star. No HDMI port!

Other Thoughts: It really should have been HDMI and not component video.
