Can anyone tell me what the Toaster's audio and video I/O capabilities are WITHOUT using a BOB?

Video:
Component I/O?
YC I/O?
Composite I/O?

Audio:
Balanced I/O?
Unbalanced I/O?

Thanks,
Kevin

Video:

Component or Y/C or composite I/O (thru the octopus cables)
plus as many DV inputs as you have firewire connectors

Audio:

Unbalanced I/O

I think it's Component -or- Y/C -plus- composite with either one.

I'm suprised you can't get balanced audio out of the breakout cable. This seems like a oversite...

If BOB can input and out put balanced audio, the breakout cable should have the signal present. Maybe just a customized cable?

Newtek... Can you confirm this, True or False?

Going straight into the card, yes, it's an unbalanced stereo pair.

"All audio is unbalanced at some point". Balanced or unbalanced has zero effect on fidelity. Balanced lines only shield you from hum on very long cable runs.

How fast can you say warranty voided??

Our miniBOB will solve many of these balanced/unbalanced problems.

I'd have to agree with Jef. No way I'd want to do anything that would risk screwing up my warrantee.....especially with a company like Newtek, who routinely fixes Toaster/Flyer boards that are 10+ years old - FOR NADA !
