    DV Card with Symphony Meridien v5

    Hi Guys,

    I have an old Symphony Meridien v5 system and I've just acquired a DV (Firewire) card from another Symphony system, but I'm not sure whether I can use this with the meridien as I believe the card may have come from an adrenaline or nitris system.

     

    Can any of you experts shed some light on this ?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Can't say for the Meridien systems but there was no DV expansion for the Adrenaline, I don't think the Nitris hardware had one either (although I'm not sure on that).

    Can't tell you much more than that.

    The DV option - meaning FireWire capture straight into the application - was a paid option on Meridien (I used to own that option), so you will not only need the approved FireWire card, but also a dongle that supports the option.

    There were two incarnations. There were Meridiens with a Z6 card, which had an FW connector by itself. On older Meridien systems, it worked with some TI-based FireWire card.

    If it's just for storage, I bet you don't need the dongle enabled option.

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the interesting info, I'm not sure whether my dongle supports Firewire so I'll have to check it out before installing any cards.

    KInd Regards.
