Eye See Some Drama Developing: Miglia & ElGato Cat Fighting!

As reported by MacMinute:

Elgato Systems today announced it has terminated the licensing agreement for EyeTV software with Miglia Technology. Miglia can no longer ship, sell or advertise TV Tuner solutions bundled with Elgato's EyeTV software. No explanation was given for the move. The company notes customers using EyeTV with a Miglia TV tuner product are not affected by this change. Elgato EyeTV will continue to work with existing Miglia products and the company will continue to support existing Miglia/EyeTV customers with software updates and improvements.

I've sent El Gato an email requesting clarification. I'll let you know if they respond.

Here is a link to the press release on the ElGato Systems website.

I love my ElGato TV Hybrid! - I also think the guys at ElGato are pretty cool. There must have been something pretty feather ruffling for this to go on. I think Mike over at XLR8YourMac knows a few contacts at ElGato - so I'll email him too to see if he can get some dirt about this.

A fraction more detail is provided here.

Miglia made no press release on Tuesday as most websites were reporting. The Miglia website was down as of the writing of this update.
