aTV(1) and eyeTV

I am trying to get my aTV to work with a USB TV tuner, and scanning this forum it looks like eyeTV 3.0.1 is the way to go.  However it doesnt appear to be very aTV friendly, requiring the use of a keyboard.

Has anyone ever tried using eyeTV lite on an aTV? It seems that the interface would be easier to control and I am not really worried by reduced feature set (my interest is live tv).  I read somewhere that eyetv lite does not support digital audio, which could make it unuseable on the atv


any experience?
