Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching
Authored by: syko on Jun 05, '08 08:15:05AM

I can tell you one thing about EyeTV launching itself-- it sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lost 1.4TB of data when my Mac Pro turned itself on while I was gone for a weekend and my drives overheated!!!! (windows were closed and so was my door in my office)

EyeTV wakes your computer up randomly even when no show is scheduled. This is a known bug and obviously a dangerous one at that!!!!!!!!!

Prevent EyeTV Helper from auto-launching

Yes, EyeTV does startup the Mac "randomly". It won't do so anymore when you uncheck the automatic update feature in the "EPG" Preferences Pane of EyeTV.
You have to set the auto-updating for the EPG *and* the Remote Programming Check to "Manually". You also have to uncheck the "Wake up from sleep" (or whatever it is named in the English Version).
