Record and playback high definition TV signals
Authored by: readparse on Apr 29, '04 11:47:11AM

Sure, I'll go ahead and reply to my own comment... as lame as that might seem. Here's the rub. Sure, recording is cool. I actually just want to WATCH my TV on my Mac. Yeah, I could go buy a card, but with a firewire out on my cable box, it makes me think I could hook the sucker up and watch away.

The only reason I don't just try it is because firewire cables ain't the cheapest and I have to buy a 6-pin to 6-pin cable. The only one I have is 6-to-4. Before I spend the $35 or so, I'd be curious about what I'm up against.

I picked up a 15 foot cable for $10.95:

Even with $5 shipping, that's still cheap! (Oh, and I use the cable regularly; FW disk mode, hooking up the company Nikon, etc.--no problems!)
