Re: Capture help needed please?

Sure, I agree with you Tim. As I said, I didn't think it was going to be of any help in your situation. I was only posting it in case it helps other people who are having firewire trouble and come across this thread.

Tim, you've got 2 FW ports on that card. What are you using each for?

Grazie

Re: Capture help needed please?

Tim, if you haven't already, try capturing without the external firewire hard drive attached to the card. Many years ago I had a problem with an old canon XM2 (GL2) which, when attached to the card at the same time as my firewire drive, caused what someone described as a 'data storm' on the firewire bus, resulting in no end of woe when capturing. Removing the firewire drive was the cure. Worth a try?

I have done a little browsing on your behalf and can see that in fact a lot of people have had troubles with HV20s and HV30s when it comes to capturing - and not just with Vegas. For many, using HDV Split was the answer, for others it was to install all the software from the CD/DVD supplied with the camera, others got it working with alternative firewire drivers. Others never had any joy (sorry).

Hence my question as to the usage of the TWO F/W ports.

Re: Capture help needed please?

Not yet Ian but thank you for your help I will try your suggestion. Along with this issue I am also sorting out all the oher woes changing over to a new PC has caused such as re-calibrating my monitor for both still images and video and getting my eyes used to the change to an acceptible degree. And there are a few other sticklers the new system is giving me for sure My inexperience is frustrating to say the least.
