    Default Best app to stream live TV??
    Hope this was best place to put this. Anyway, you've got Slingbox, Orb, Eye and probably some others.

    I've got comcast cable at home (doubt that matters) and a Mac (that does matter). What is the best way to do this and please mention what TV tuner card or hardware you had to buy to connect the Mac to the comcast receiver. I'd like to spend less than $100.

    Thanks
    I thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host

    I am currently running a sling box. I this option because I can sling to any computer or iPhone I want. It will run you a little more than $100 tho

    I use Orb with a Hauppauge TV tuner, it works pretty well. I'm not sure if they support Mac though...

    Have you heard about Elgato's EyeTV app?It connects to any Mac running version 3.2 of Elgato’s EyeTV software, and can automatically find a Mac on a local Wi-Fi network using Bonjour.As we know live streaming requires a Mac sporting an Intel Core 2 Duo processor or better, Wi-Fi connection, and a compatible TV tuner.
    Whatever,the app is available from the iTunes Store for US$4.99,while the EyeTV 3.2 update is available as a free download from Elgato for EyeTV 3 users..I hope this may help you.
