The Apple TV HD preset is also available as an auto-export option.
Each new schedule can be set to auto-export to Apple TV HD.
Any Smart Guide can also be set to auto-export to Apple TV HD, via the Options button for that Smart Guide.

Using “Apple TV HD” Exports With Many Apple Devices
Apple TV HD content exported from EyeTV is 720p, and should be able to play with all modern hardware from Apple, including:
Apple TV 2
This means you only have to export each recording once, using Apple TV HD, and then that exported recording can work with many Apple devices. Since the recording will be automatically placed in iTunes, all you have to do is sync your device with iTunes, and then transfer it over from your Mac.
The limiting factor is whether your Apple devices can play 720p video or not – most recent models can.
Using “Apple TV HD” Exports With Turbo.264 HD
Turbo.264 HD software and hardware can integrate with EyeTV, to help with exports.
To use the new Apple TV HD export in EyeTV 3.5.4 and above, you will need to use Turbo.264 HD 1.2.1 and above.
