No. But don't leave EyeTV for the Mac out of the mix. I admit I use  
it sometimes when I don't have to edit much and I just want to  
export, not watch it.

One really nice thing is the easy export to just about any file type,  
format, compression, audio type, or anything else you want - just  
pick the final format you want, click the mouse and wait (sometimes  
for a long time).

Some of the other commercial offerings might have similar features  
but I wouldn't know.
