EX-1 firewire to HVRM25U

Has anyone confirmed that the EX-1 firewire will work and send an HDV signal to a 25U deck? I have an EX-1 ordered and am looking at getting a deck that will also be DV compatable. Also has anyone been able to record to a firestore or similar hard drive device. I understand that 35MBS is not possible but if the 25MBS is fully HDV compliant this should work.

When the EX1 is in SP (HDV) record mode it can output HDV via firewire. If recording HQ the firewire is disabled.



Good Luck

Micheal meant to say that it does work under those conditions.

Beware though relying too literally on the manual! That indicates that you can record to an HDV deck when shooting in SP mode (firewire) but seems to suggest that you have to be actually shooting in order to do this. There is no mention being able to transfer video from the files on the card. In order to do this you have to be in 'Media' mode, enable the firewire connection in the menu and play the clips with (of course) the deck recoding to tape.
