Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching

There is no need to edit the app, just the files it installs in the Library.

I think that replacing the Library: Application Support: EyeTV: Wakein file with a blank, locked text file of the same name would do the trick. If it doesn't, then do the same for the other files in the directory until it does.

Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching

I tried that, too. And again, 3 minutes ago because I like your idea. I replaced Wakein and started EyeTV. It asked for admin password and wiped the file, replacing it with its own bogus file I created inside the app.

It seems to me that EyeTV is pretty keen about these files in the support folder.
