Use Safari with Titan TV and EyeTV Web Browsers
Now you can use the Titan TV web site on Safari to program your EyeTV! ElGato's EyeTV uses the Titan TV web site for TV schedules in the U.S. One can click on the record button on a Titan TV listing, and the program information is automatically sent to EyeTV -- but not with Apple's Safari browser. I'd much rather use Safari than any other browser, so I created an Applescript Folder action to fix this.

The freeware script is avaiable here: http://burtcom.com/lex/

Rather than use Titan TV, I use Karelia Software's Watson. Works great with EyeTV.

I have tested this on Panther, and despite what the author of the script says about where he put the script file, the only way I got it to work was to put the script where the existing Folder Action Scripts are located, namely /Library/Scripts/Folder Action Scripts

If putting it elsewhere doesn't work for you, do what I did and try.

Works fine for me -- have you created an account, etc?

In any case, yout difficulty with the Titan site should probably be taken up with Titan, not this forum.

...Or you can just double-click the program.tvpi file that is downloaded when you click the record button in TitanTV.

Sure -- if you have time to find the file and double-click, I suppose :-)

Me, I prefer to automate as much as possible...

Does anyone know how to make those tvpi files?

since i'm not in the states, those titan tv stuff doesn't work for me.

I'm getting my eyetv shortly and would like to know wether it's possible to create those files yourself from say a php-script. (As i can get the program information no problem)

EyeTV now works with TVTV for folks not living in the US. Check the El Gato web site for a list of working countries.
