I’m very pleased to announce that Mike Evangelist from Elgato is our guest on Wednesday, April 7th. Elgato makes hardware and software that allows Mac users to record, watch, edit and save TV shows on their Macs. They have systems that work wit over the air broadcasts (including HD) as well as Cable and set top boxes. The hardware is quite small, and works extremely well. Here’s an example:

From my place (about eight miles west of the Sears Tower), I can receive over 30 stations for free over the air from the transmitters on the Sears Tower and the Hancock Center. The same system allows me to see clear QAM
signals from Comcast, which allows me to view basic cable in standard definition at no charge. I can purchase cable TV from Comcast, of curse, but this arrangement works great.
The logistics of the meeting are:
