No I wasn't able to get any picture (I wasn't expecting any either) but I was just surprised that it recognized as something other than an "unknown 1394 device" and then it wanted tuner software. I have a few other experiments to try and I will report back what happens http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif.
I recently got a Compaq Persario 7000T (yup, one with a DVD-R too) and noticed that there was more Firewire support than just camcorder with Windows ME. Out of curiosity I plugged my PV-HD1000 into Firewire port and Windows saw it and installed an AVC driver for it and then went looking for tuner software. Anyone else try this?
