Eye Connect 1.7 is out and is Intel ONLY http://dl.elgato.com...nect_17_608.dmg

This is the link for EyeConnect 1.6.7, the last universal version. http://dl.elgato.com...ect_167_464.dmg
(For the more ambitious Mac users, here is the link to the EyeConnect plug in SDK
http://www.elgato.co...Connect.en.html)

Note: You must have sharing turned on in iPhoto and iTunes
1) Install Eyeconnect, it will appear in the System
Preferences window.

2)Fire wall settings
Troubleshooting

Due to Apple's restrictions, playing back music that has been purchased from the iTunes Music Store is not supported.

Consult the owner’s guide of your digital media player for setup assistance.

In general, all UPnP AV devices require that the Macintosh which runs EyeConnect and the player device both reside on the same local network and subnet. Generally, this means if you are setting up the player to use a wireless connection, and your Mac is connected to the network via Ethernet, you will need to ensure that your Airport or other Wi-Fi base station is set to bridge the wired and wireless networks.

If you do not see any devices, try stopping and restarting EyeConnect. Check whether the Mac OS X Firewall is running. If it is, you need to create a new access rule that opens up port 2170.

For Mac OS 10.4.x, open the Sharing System Preference pane and select the Firewall tab. Click New. In the next sheet, select Other from the Port Name dropdown menu, type 2170 in the Port Number field, and “EyeConnect” into the Description field. Click OK, then go to the EyeConnect preference pane and restart EyeConnect.

For Mac OS 10.5.x, open the Security System Preference pane and select the Firewall tab. Add “Allow incoming connections” for the EyeConnect application located at /Library/Application Support/EyeConnect/EyeConnect.app.

For Mac OS 10.6.x, open the Security System Preference pane and select the Firewall tab. Click the Advanced button, and add “Allow incoming connections” for the EyeConnect application located at /Library/Application Support/EyeConnect/EyeConnect.app, and disable “Stealth Mode”.

http://www.dbstalk.c...07&d=1190169105

3) start the server and you should be good to go. (You should see the HR20 in the device widow )

Remember, Photo streaming (and video when enabled) is free for 30 days, after that it is music only unless you buy an activation key.

Nick from Elgato has sent me a link to an Eyeconnect beta (1.1.1b2) that works!
Try it and give me your feedback It is a Mac UPnP A/V server. The pictures, etc will work for 30 days but the audio is free.

Both. The purchased ones are the "Plus" ones, with the DRM removed. I have no mp3s. I will try the ones that are still DRM protected and see what happens. I'll report back in a few

In any case, thanks for all your hard work to get Twonky to work. The pictures are still squeezed with T, not so with EyeConnect.

'twas nothing, really. No big deal. I like the EyeConnect solution a LOT better.

Having said that ... I just gave it a try - my AAC files work fine, but Protected AAC don't.

I found one or two that do, but I have no idea what the story is with that. Most of them say "Can't load media file" which is what I expected ...

Awesome job getting in touch with the folks at Elgato - thanks for staying on top of it and getting us a kick-ass solution! Those Windows folks can only DREAM of having such an elegant way to do this ......

No go on the DRM ones; glad that the Plus ones work though! Unfortunately of the 106 "Protected AAC" files, iTunes Plus only offers to convert 2 of 'em.

D'oh!

Anyway to stop the music other than shutting off EyeConnect then restarting it?

Only 2?? Ouch!! I wish all record companies went DRM free though would make things ALOT easier. And I second what has been said, thank you for the Twonky solution!!

Does pressing the 'stop' button on the remote stop it?

Well, as a Yankee fan, I get to hear Metallica in the 9th whenever Mo comes in to shut it down.

And yes, it never sounded so good as a rockin' Yankee Stadium with 58,000 fans going crazy!

Actually the more I tinker with it, pressing the stop, exit OR pressing the yellow button. Neither of them work.

I may have to program a button or two as I have tried the exit and yellow buttons. Pressing the yellow shows the other program indicating that SHOULD be the audio coming through but its not. Hitting exit same. Possible I have to tinker with my Xbox model Harmony a bit.
