Oh!; and you could want to try some AV/C device, as any firewire camcorder; then if you have success there, since I'm officially sticky to the O2 line, I just could want to start to plain officially my hara-kiri!
The whole video thingy is kinda outside my experience but there are a few different standards ? The SGI firewire video only works with one protocol, I thought ? All firewire-equipped camcorders use that same protocol ?
IIDC/DCAM: Uncompressed video without audio over firewire, mainly used for industrial cameras
AV/C: Compressed video (internally to 5:1 by mean of the camera DSP) with audio over firewire, mainly used for consumer market camcorders
The first generation of DM10 uses only the first one. The second generation of DM10 software uses both protocols, but AV/C stills in alpha/beta mode, and only works with a few devices. Maybe Neko could try with an ADS Tech Pyro A/V Link (one of the few officially supported AV/C devices), but no luck from Squeen, and in fact not for me when tried with the built-in 6.5.27 support for DM10.
I think Squeen has the second generation drivers, but no luck putting to work the Pyro toy; I don't have the second generation DM10 software, so, only tried with a plain install of 6.5.27, and alternatively with the first gen drivers...
I hope this will clear up the things a little bit!
...But summarizing, a really basic try-out could be just trying to hook up any i-Link/Firewire camcorder device to the Fuel, and see what happens... 99.99% camcorders are AV/C devices. I have pretty handy all the needed parts, excepting the Fuel, and second gen drivers for DM10...
