What was new in EyeConnect 1.6.10?

First Intel-Only Version of EyeConnect

EyeConnect 1.6.10 and all future EyeConnect updates are only available for Mac computers with an Intel processor. Power PC processors are no longer supported. EyeConnect 1.6.10 will work on an Intel Mac with OS 10.5.8 or better. However, we recommend Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later with all software and security updates installed.

Bug Fixes

System Requirements

EyeConnect requires an Intel Macintosh computer with built-in USB 2.0 ports, and Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later. We recommend Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard with all software and security updates installed.


After the installer has finished, the EyeConnect preference pane opens. After a short while you should see your digital media player on the network. The digital media player should now be able to see your Macintosh as a supported media server. You can control playback of all EyeTV recordings, videos, music, and photo using the remote control that came with your digital media player. 

Try full functionality for 30 days — Audio only mode afterwards 

EyeConnect is fully functional for 30 days. When the trial period ends, EyeConnect disables access to all devices. At this point, you need to choose whether to enter an EyeConnect activation key, purchase one, or continue using EyeConnect in audio only mode. Open the EyeConnect preference pane, click the Info tab and then the Activate button.

If you have an EyeConnect activation key, enter it now; otherwise, you may purchase an EyeConnect activation key by clicking the Buy Now button, or continue to use EyeConnect with your digital media player in audio only mode.


Due to Apple's restrictions, playing back music that has been purchased from the iTunes Music Store is not supported.

Consult the owner’s guide of your digital media player for setup assistance. 

In general, all UPnP AV devices require that the Macintosh which runs EyeConnect and the player device both reside on the same local network and subnet. Generally, this means if you are setting up the player to use a wireless connection, and your Mac is connected to the network via Ethernet, you will need to ensure that your Airport or other Wi-Fi base station is set to bridge the wired and wireless networks.

If you do not see any devices, try stopping and restarting EyeConnect. Check whether the Mac OS X Firewall is running. If it is, you need to create a new access rule that opens up port 2170.

For Mac OS 10.5.x, open the Security System Preference pane and select the Firewall tab. Add “Allow incoming connections” for the EyeConnect application located at /Library/Application Support/EyeConnect/EyeConnect.app.

For Mac OS 10.6.x, open the Security System Preference pane and select the Firewall tab. Click the Advanced button, and add “Allow incoming connections” for the EyeConnect application located at /Library/Application Support/EyeConnect/EyeConnect.app, and disable “Stealth Mode”.
