    If it outputs DV, then it should work with the ADVC.
    This page also seems to agree that it can preview to a connected DV device over 1394.

    You might have to put the ADVC into Digital In mode manually, depending on whether Encore sends a DV Record command (which will put the ADVC into Digital In mode for you) or not.

    still unsure..

    well..

    First, can I just say: what a swift response! thanks very much for that everyone.

    second, the ADS pyro i have is ohci compliant. It is a very basic model - the package i bought included premiere elements v2. The literature provided with the card mentions OHCI compliancy several times.

    the problem i have is that currently i have no dv devices to connect to the pc. i'm using a "tarted-up" desktop pc purely for encoding (sorensen squeeze), authoring(encore) and Director/Flash, so capturing DV hasn't really come onto my radar - we have an Avid mediacomposer workstation on-site for NLE.

    there is an option for Encore 2.0 which enables a preview of a menu on a monitor connected to a DV device. I'm paraphrasing, but that's pretty much as close as I can get at the moment without a screenshot, or access to the manual.

    i checked the flash sales tool on the canopus website - one of the listed features is the ability to use the ADVC to preview video on an analogue monitor.

    from this (admittedly flimsy) information, does it sound as if Encore outputs DV? i still have no idea and I'd be grateful if someone could enlighten me.

    Thanks again
    Dan

    Pyro should be OHCI-compliant, though there were many Pyro variations, so perhaps some aren't. The basic Firewire-only Pyro is though.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe the ADS Pyro card is not OHCI compliant, which means it won't be supported by Encore (and thus, no output for the ADVC to convert and display).

    An inexpensive generic OHCI IEEE 1394 FireWire card will solve this problem.

    The ADVC will only provide analog output when provided with DV or DVCAM data over Firewire. It's just like hooking up a DV camcorder or deck.

    If Encore outputs DV/DVCAM over Firewire to preview its menus, then it'll work. If not, it won't.

    additional

    I too am interested in purchasing the advc110.

    i have a question which i have yet to have answered in almost 3 days of searching!

    Using only the following bits of hard and software:

    Encore 2.0
    ads pyro pci firewire card
    advc110
    analogue monitor

    I intend to connect my pc (running xp sp2 pro, dual core pentium 4 w/700meg ram) via 6pin firewire out to the advc110, then svideo out from the advc110 to the monitor...

    will i be able to use the menu preview function with Encore using this setup? if not, is there an alternative configuration anyone could recommend? i have already posted the same question in numerous adobe forums, and queried their customer support, but no joy..

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Yes, I believe this is possible.

    ADVC110 Simultaneous Output

    Hi All,

    I'm interested in purchasing an ADVC110. I was wondering if this device allows you to output both the S-Video and the Composite to different screens at the same time and have them both running in sync?

    Thanks!
