Thanks - just to make sure I understand correctly - So if I purchase the converter, I just send the SVIDEO cable from the hi8 deck into the converter's SVIDEO input and then take RCA audio cables out of my deck into the converter's audio inputs. Then out of the converter via firewire out and into my editing system (cs5.5)?
I didn't realize you could send hi8 over firewire with a converter.
Yes... read at the http://www.grassvalley.com/products/advc55 link... on the right side is a link to the product manual
The 55 is one way from outside into a computer... the model 110 is 2-way in case you want to play out to a tape deck
I already downloaded the manul to look at. Looks like this will work.
Thanks for your help!
