Hey ehMacians! I've had some cool contests here and there over the years on the site, but today we're starting what I hope is one of many cool contests on ehMac.ca!

I'm giving away not 1 but 2 Elgato eyetv HD's valued at $199 each!

I decided to try to make the contest fun and a little bit challenging with two different ways registered members can enter.

All the details are in the YouTube video I made which has to be viewed at YouTube.com.

So without further ado..

The ehMac Elgato eyetv HD Contest! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaNqIiMKNkA&feature=channel_video_title)

Good luck! ;)

Cool Mr. Mayor, great promo ad and reviews... well done.

Cool, great idea.

Thank you very much. I hope I didn't make it too complicated, I wanted it to be a bit of a challenge, and there's until July 1st to submit.

Next prize I'll make extremely easy and just for existing ehMac.ca members. ;) I'll mix is up, some challenging, some easy. The idea is to have a lot more contest and prizes. I like contests and prizes.

A few hours into the contest and we have about 10 entries already through answering the question and 3 entries through the Facebook page.

I was excited to see that Elgato just featured the reviews (http://www.elgato.com/elgato/na/mainmenu/products/EyeTV-HD/product1.en.html) on their official product page.

I was with you all the way up to Facebook. I've boycotted everything to do with Facebook, so I guess I can't enter this one.

Good luck everyone!

Hey kloan, you don't have to do the Facebook thing. I totally understand that Facebook is not everyone's cup of tea. That's the second of two ways that you can enter.

You can just do the first method, finding the question in the video and submitting the answer through the link in the YouTube comments section and you'll be entered. ;) (Don't post the answer here!) :o

If people want, they can enter a second time through the Facebook page, but that's totally optional.

Hmm... I watched the review, entered a comment in the YouTube page and got an error saying that my comment could not be submitted; plus I too do not do Facebook. So I guess I do not have a chance of winning the EyeTV eh?

Cheers

ehMac.ca - as a Canuck and an avid Mac User, I'm SO EXCITED that you're running this contest.

Keep up the best work - and best of luck running the contest!

Take care, eh?

Ditto here. Oh well, I have had an Elgato for many years now.

Just as a suggestion though, any contest run on ehMac should be set up to be entered on ehMac, not on YouTube or Facebook.

Why draw members away from ehMac? After all, it's OUR home.

-------------------------

This contest was designed to be a little "challenging", and also to connect with more people through the social media sites. All the efforts of YouTube, Twitter and Facebook is purely to connect with like-minded Canadians and get them involved with ehMac.ca, our home.

The next contest we'll do a lot simpler and we'll make it just for existing ehMac.ca members.

Mr. Mayor, it is this part that was not clear to me - that we had to send a comment on EhMac to win. From my reading earlier, I understood it to mean that I should submit my comments in the YouTube comments section to win.

I do not know if I am the only one (other than Sinc) to labour under this misunderstanding.

Cheers

Oh, alrighty then :)

K, entered..

I'm kinda surprised it doesn't have an HDMI input, being 'HD' n all... still though, looks like a pretty slick device. I really dig the iPhone feature.

What video codec are the recordings saved in? Any DRM?

Thanks VERY MUCH for the nice comment darscot, that made my day. :)

Having a TON of FUN with the wearable GoPro HD Hero camera and making a video with that. Was going to do lots more filming today, but having huge thunderstorms here. Will probably finish filming early next week.

Really glad you liked the video, hope to make lots more and continue to get the hang of it and get more comfortable at it.
