(If yours works this way, congratulations! You're one of the lucky few!0.
    I must be one of the lucky ones because mine is working this way! Now if only I could get the power ball numbers!

    Thanks for the help!!!

    Your best bet for error-free operation is to plug one FireWire-based DV device into your computer as needed.

    The ADVC can only operate in one mode at a time, so no. However, you should avoid attaching more than one DV device to the bus at a time as doing so can cause unpredictable results as most software won't know which device to communicate with.

    Is the ADVC110 converting my DV IN connection to analog and then back to digital to the DV out to my computer?

    If this is the case dose this degrade the signal in any way or would I get better results just connecting my FireWire DV out from my camcorder to my FireWire connection on my computer?

    Thanks for any info!
