Outstanding. Keep us advised. Always happy to discuss the good 'ol XL1. It's what started this forum (eighteen years ago this month).

As far as editing the DV footage, Adobe gave away the CS2 "Creative Suite Production Premium" several years ago. I paid $1100 for it on discount back when CS3 came out so it's a great deal. It includes Premiere Pro 2.0 which edits Mini DV footage great. The free download links were on their site.

I still have 3 firewire decks. Two for Digital 8 and one for Mini DV. Yes those type decks will use 1394 firewire. A good old computer should do the job as said earlier

Unless I'm mistaken, they didn't quite "give away" CS2, although the end result was about the same. They shut down the activation server for CS2, which made it impossible for registered users to re-install the software since it wouldn't recognize your serial number. So as not to lock out registered users of that old software, they still offered the installer as a download and posted a special serial number on their site that would activate any copy of CS2.

Somebody discovered this and word got out on various forums with instructions on how to get the software for free. So I don't think it was ever Adobe's intention to 'give away" CS2. I picked up a copy of Photoshop CS2 myself with this trick, but that was many years ago. I don't think Adobe still has this on their site today, but I could be wrong. :-)

Now, Photoshop CS2 has some very annoying bugs running on Windows 7, mostly related to disappearing/hidden windows and dialog boxes. Have never tried the other software in CS2, but you may find that it works best under Windows XP.

Adobe may or may not have learnt from that act of goodness that meant legit CS2 users wouldn't be stuck, and thus will never switch off authentication for CS6 users despite their wish to have everyone migrate to the software rental model.

My apologies. You are correct on all that and I had forgotten it was intended for those of us who had bought it originally.
Years ago I went ahead and downloaded all the software in case I ever needed to re-install it on my old Windows XP Matrox RT.X100 workstation. I also downloaded all the updates and patches and there were a lot for the whole collection.

Photoshop CS2 works good on my Wind 8.1 Laptop except sometimes the mouse pointer seems to disappear briefly. Don't know if it's an issue with the computer or software.
And I know someone who is running Photoshop CS2 on Win 10.

As far as CS6.... I've been using Adobe since 1999. As new cameras come out it's getting harder since Codecs are not supported so eventually I'll have to switch to different software but it won't be the Adobe rental.

I'm sticking with XDCAM in addition to CS6. :-)

That's interesting. On my Windows 7 desktop (with Intel HD6000 integrated graphics), dialog boxes sometimes don't appear and the program appears to be frozen. This mostly happens with the "Save" dialog. But the real problem is that the dialog box is hidden behnd the document window, and it's waiting for input so you can't do anything except press ESC to cancel the operation.

The other issue is that it doesn't seem understand how windows are managed. When you open the program, your document appears inside a main Photoshop window. But if you re-size the document, it can go outside the bounds of the main Window, and that is apparently related to the other problem.

Anyway, I don't use it much anymore. I have CS3 on my Mac laptop, which still works under Sierra, with a few bugs. On my other Mac, I bought a copy of Photoshop Elements since I don't need anything fancy. In the past, Photoshop Elements was exactly the same as the full version, but it didn't have a few advanced features that I didn't need anyway. But the new Photoshop Elements has been further "dumbed down" and I really don't like it.

Eventually I'll need to upgrade to a new version... probably soon. When I looked at their subscription pricing a couple months ago, I was not at all impressed. OTOH, Microsoft has a nice deal for Office 365 where you get 6 licenses for a $100/yr fee, and each user also gets 1TB of OneDrive space and can use Office on 5 different devices. Adobe doesn't come anywhere near this unfortunately...
