Elgato has updated its EyeTV digital video recorder and EyeHome, its digital media player.

EyeTV 1.6 now allows users to export in iMovie, iDVD and DVD Studio Pro formats making it easier to edit professional quality recordings. Other new export formats include MPEG and MPEG-4 for Web and email.

The update also features support for Dolby 5.1 surround sound on the Power Mac G5, a Dolby-certified AC3 audio decoder, and reduced CPU use during playback on machines that support Apple's Quartz Extreme. It is available now as a free download on the Elgato website.

EyeHome 1.5 features usability and navigation enhancements as well as a redesigned graphical interface which features a popup window containing information about the currently displayed video or tune, according to the company.

It is now possible to show an iPhoto slideshow while iTunes music is playing. The update offers improved DivX support and support for the Ogg Vorbis audio format.

EyeHome costs 250 euros. EyeTV costs from 280 euros.
