I am having trouble connecting my Motorola DCT6412 Phase 3 to my Mac. I am using RCN in San Francisco and am not 100% sure the firewire is activiated on the box. I have downloaded the Firewire SDK. When I use AVCBrowser, it sees the 6412, with Type 5, #in = 0, #out = 1, and OutBase = 63.
After I click Open Device Controller, I cannot connect the Input, I get an error reading: Error trying to connect to input plug 0: 0xE0008017
If I click Connect for the Output I get: Compare-swap to output plug 0 successful. OldVal=0x80008178 NewVal=0x81008178
Now if I switch up and launch AVCVideoCap, again the 6412 is listed. I can click on Capture from Device, and it looks like it's recording, and creates a file. 1 minute was 130+ MBs. However, when I try to play that file, it's empty, or at least the Virtual DVHS2 doesn't show anything except a timeline - no audio or video.
I've tried the Virtual DVHS program to capture video, but it doesn't want to connect when I try to control the 6412, in fact it just hangs up with the pinwheel until I force quit.
When I check the device firmware, it reads 12.13
Does anyone have any suggestions?
