"I must keep an XP computer for certain applications"............
[<Yigal>] I need to capture analog video........... - I was sure it's obvious. Is there anything I can do now to use
[<Yigal>] I don't know firewire that well. With USB it's different - the
USB device is recognized by OS when inserted (hot insertion) by the OS -
and this can be done by any modern OS. The problem is how to control the
flow of the data that goes on that bus: and for that you need the
drivers which should interface to the capturing software. In my case,
the DVC150 can be use by Pinnacles' Studio software, and they have no
intention to deliver Linux software, so I assume I have no choice -
unless I will buy FireWire device, and in that case I will need FireWire
PCI card, and why not - A DV camera... quite expansive thing in order to
work with free of charge OS.
BTW - when I plugged the DVC150 to the Linux PC - I got no response at
all - with XP I am used to see the OS recognize the hot insertion.
Shouldn't FC2 recognize it as well ?
