Firewire Problems


New member
Has anyone had these problems-

Everything that we shoot is on DVCam, I was told no problem with the Toaster 2, just firewire it in... Great! not Great.

I am continually having sync problems with the audio and video when captured with firewire, and the Audio is at a terribly low level.

Has anyone figured out anything to fix any of these problems??!!

Geeze Tim,

It seems like you are having a ton of problems. Is your machine a dealer/turnkey or did you build it yourself?

Can you list the configuration?

You're in good hands, then. This kind of stuff always happens when it's a)day one, and b) the weekend.
