Yes, you are correct. All USB ports on new Macs are USB 2.0 with the exception of the one on the keyboard, which is still, I believe, USB 1.0
Is your device plugged into a USB hub or is it plugged directly into the back of the Mac?
Is the device seen in the System Profiler? Kinda like the Device Manager on Windows. Under the Apple at the top left of the screen. Choose About this Mac and then choose More Info from the next window.
Check under USB to see if you see the device and that the bus is described as Hi-Speed.
If not, try this. Shut down the Mac. Remove ALL the cables from the back of the thing. Power, USB, Ethernet, Firewire.
Leave the thing for 15 minutes.
Plug the keyboard and mouse in, then the Power cord and fire it up.
See if you Eye TV functions now.
Let us know
I'm new to Mac. Two weeks ago I bought a new iMac (24" 2.66 Ghz Mac OS X 10.5.7) at the Apple store along with the Elgato Eye TV Hybrid tuner. I use the TV function every day, but today it shut off and will not work. I received an error message telling me that Eye TV will not work in a 1.1 USB port and that I should plug the TV tuner in a 2.0 USB port. It's my understanding that all the iMac ports are 2.0.
I tried calling Apple Care Support but they are closed for the 3 day holiday. : (
Any idea what the problem is or what I can do to get this to work? I am using the cables that came with they Eye TV tuner. I've restarted the iMac a couple times and the same thing happens.
