Record HD video via FireWire -- revisited
Authored by: blairb666 on Jul 29, '06 03:10:31PM

I don't understand it... I followed this hint and it worked *perfectly.* I recorded four times (1 min segments just to test) from my SA3250 box to my 20" intel iMac and the results were awesome. Fast forward two minutes, nothing has changed... now all I get are zero byte files, or files that just won't play. VLC shows no error, MPEG streamclip tells me Unsupported file type. I have changed *nothing* since it worked. I've tried rebooting, powering on/off the cable box, unplugging/replugging. Any ideas?

Well apparently I changed the box so that it displays in 720p, as that is all the monitor (not my computer monitor) attached to it will display. As soon as the box is changed to 720p, the recordings produced by avcvideocap are worthless. Not sure why 720p would cause it to stop functioning. I can run it in 1080i, but then I can't watch TV from the box.
