I have the Pyro OHCI firewire card also
known as the ADS technologies card based
on the popular TI TSB12LV23 chip. I also have
a NTSC Sony TRV900 camcorder.

I'm using Windows 98SE and have a fast
PIII and IDE hard drive.

Here's what I'm looking for:

Software that will allow me to record from
camcorder playback to my hard drive the
entire data stream from the camcorder
intact without any modification or demuxing.
This means that all the headers, subcodes,
even the H0 header is intact when recorded
to a hard drive file or files. Handling of long
tape segments requiring more than one file
in a single burst is desirable though not
mandatory. This may be considered a
recording that has video and audio multiplexed,
that is not seperated, but is more since it also
needs ALL the data intact, not just the audio
and video. I mean that I want the subcodes
and H0 header packets too.

A NTSC DV camcorder sends 250 packtets
of 480 bytes to the PC for every frame. This
is about 7492.5 packets per second. Actually
it sends a bit more than 480 bytes including
timestamps and other headers.

I'd like to get at least 480 bytes x 7492.5 packets
recorded on my hard drive every second from
the camcorder. If more than 480 bytes per packet
are recorded to the hard drive, I'll take them.

Is any software recording an exact image of the
firewire packet contents without filtering or demuxing?

As this has nothing to do with HDTV, I'm closing the thread, but will leave it here for others to read.
