App Store Description

finessTV Client plays the live tv stream of EyeTV running on a Mac or a selected EyeTV archive movie.

Clients can easily and privately connect to the server from outside the local WiFi and friends can be invited to share television and archived movies.

As a requirement, the "finessTV Server" has to be started on the Mac. The client can access the server within the local network or outside the local network (after entering a server address and port in the preferences).

After the successful connection, the available channels are displayed on the left and the current live tv stream is displayed on the right.

The fullscreen button (FS) shows the player in fullscreen mode, MENU on the remote control switches back to inline mode.

Selecting a channel will change the channel in EyeTV on the Mac and, as soon as the new stream data is available, the live stream will be switched.

Because multiple clients can be connected to the server, the channel is also switched if the channel is switched on another client.

Due to the system requirements, the live stream is delayed (ca.10-15 seconds) and the switch takes several seconds (ca. 20).

Please note that streaming of DVB-T2 in Germany is still not working properly caused by incorrect data
of the public broadcasting services - read more at our blog.

Furthermore the EyeTV archive can be selected to watch a recorded movie on a client. Other clients can continue to watch the live stream or select and watch an archive movie as well.

finessTV supports EPG based on a web page url (see Preferences; only available on iPad), broadcast data or XMLTV setup in the server.

Links to the required applications (EyeTV 3, VLC, finessTV Server) and plugin (VLC EyeTV Plugin) on Mac running macOS 10.11 or later can be found at the support web page. And at "Tips & Tricks" additional help can be found.
