Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching

EyeTV scheduling is simply based on files created into the Archive directory as ".eyetvsched" files. Try this you'll see.
This explains why all EyeTV connected on the same Archive Directory sees these recordings and auto schedule them.

This would help you find any other elegant solution

Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching

Thanks for your explanation about these ".eyetvsched" files. They might schedule, but they are not triggering the hardware at all. This is done by the "EyeTV Helper" .app along with the Terminal commands found in the "Wakein" file.

You absolutely have to get rid of these routines in order to avoid unwanted startup of the machine. This sends any calls inside the ".eyetvsched" file directly into Nirvana.
