First off great forum. I have been scanning it for a while but know I need some help.

I have a 6pin firewire coming out of a miranda on my camera. The firewire goes to my laptop where I capture video. what I would like to know is there an inexpensive way to split the firewire signal carrying the video? I want to go to my laptop which gives me pause control from my camera record button. I want the second signal to go to a digital recorder that will just record continuously. My main purpose is for recording sports. This would give me a backup in case my laptop messes up or do not hit the record button.

Hi afireman,


I have the same situation and was looking at buying that Belkin splitter mentioned in the above post. I was wondering if you had any luck and if it worked for you?

OP made one post, over two years ago. What do you think the odds of him responding are?
