My question(s) has any one actually
1) downloaded info to a Linux box using 1934 from a DV camera
Tried, but ran into version problems with the 1394 modules
and my kernel at the time. I'll try again soon.
Have a look at http://www.schirmacher.de/arne/dvgrab/index_e.html
2) any one tried backing up/restore to a DV camera
Most DV cameras have input disabled as a anti-piracy
thing (BAH!) and need a hack to allow it which will
void your warranty.
Anyway the thought of driving an expensive camera hard
to backup a relatively cheap disk is not attractive to me.
