Yep. Exactly what the title states. Sometimes, I brain fart and make things a lot more difficult that I have to.
Lo and behold, EyeTV has an option to output directly to QuickTime .mov files in either h.264 or "MPEG-4". I'm opting for MPEG-4 at the moment since my previous experience with h.264 taxed and put additional load on iMovie. Even when I was only doing voice overs for commentary.
And that sad truth? EyeTV outputs to QuickTime a lot faster than dumping it to h.264 native and running that file through MPEG Streamclip. So I think I found my work flow till I upgrade to FCPX.
EyeTV -> QuickTime -> iMovie -> turbo.264 HD to .mp4 for upload to YouTube.
Yep. This works for me. For now.
