ElGato EyeHome 1.6 incompatible with MacOS X 10.4.3

ElGato EyeHome incompatible with MacOS X 10.4.3 ElGato has confirmed, that their EyeHome media player 1.6 is currently not compatible with MacOSX 10.4.3. The newest MacOS X breaks the EyeHome application version 1.6 necessary to stream content to the Elgato EyeHome device. The application unexpectedly quits within seconds of being activated from the system preference pane. No word on a fix, yet. So if you use an EyeHome you should not update to 10.4.3 right now. P.S.: I just heard, that the older version called EyeHome 1.52 runs fine with MacOS X 10.4.3 and is recommended, until a fix is supplied. From their FAQ : It seems that EyeHome 1.5.2 still should work fine. Eye Home 1.52 download Erase the EyeHome.prefPane associated with 1.6, in /Library/PreferencePanes, and then install 1.5.2. EyeHome 1.5.2 is not a perfect solution - there may be problems with EyeTV content, and with aliases, that were fixed by 1.6. To work around EyeTV content issues, export recordings as MPEG Program Stream, and place in Movies folder, for playback in EyeHome. Or, place your most desired EyeTV recordings into an EyeTV Archive folder, in the default location - the Library folder in your Home directory. We are continuing to work with Apple on a resolution.
