Re: BNC to Firewire to laptop for streaming to LiveStream?

Ah, great tip!

Fortunately, my old powerbook has the 8-pin.

Makes me wonder if the new Mac powerbooks still have the firewire 400 8-pin? Maybe they only have the firewire 800 these days?

That's something to consider when I finally upgrade I suppose; ahhh, it looks like they do care 800 to 400 firewire cables! Nice. :)

Thanks again Hart and Chris, I really appreciate your help! ;)

Have a great week.

Cheers,
Micky

I do this with a Grass Valley / Canopus a/d converter. Your 800 firewire port will work fine with a 9pin to 6pin cable.

The XHA1 will also work as a pass-through converter via firewire - but you have to go into the menu and turn on the av input-to-dv output each time you connect - and you need a signal coming in for it to work.
